Content: Sue Goldstein presented the latest advances in female sexual dysfunctions. She talked about current pharmacologic treatment in sexual desire and presented the ISSWSH guide on how to use testosterone in women in a safe way. In the domain of arousal, Sue Goldstein talked about the efforts of ISSWSH to suggest a different name for persistent genital arousal syndrome and the significance of such a change. She also talked about characteristics of this problem, contributing factors, treatment goals and algorithms.
This lecture is part of a special IOSS event titled “Scientific Advances in Sexual Medicine’ dedicated to our colleague and friend Ariel Gustavo Scafuri MD, PhD, FACS, FECSM. Ariel was a board-certified urologist and obstetrician-gynecologist and a full Professor of Anatomy at Federal University of Ceará, Medical School, Ceará, Brazil and unfortunately passed away due to complications from COVID-19. Ariel was one of few that had received gynecology, urology and psychology comprehensive training, thus being equipped to provide true multidisciplinary care to his patients. Ariel was also actively involved in the major national and international scientific societies: the International Society of Sexual Medicine (ISSM), the European Society of Sexual Medicine (ESSM), the International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health (ISSWSH), the Latin American Society of Sexual Medicine (SLAMS) and also the Brazilian Association of Sexual Medicine (ABEMSS). We will always remember him as a loving man. May his passion for learning and his enthusiasm for scientific novelty influence the next generations of sexual medicine specialists.
