    Book details

This widely acclaimed reference work gives a comprehensive survey of all significant human malformations and related anomalies from the perspective of the clinician. The anomalies are organized by anatomical system and presented in a consistent manner, including details of the clinical presentation, epidemiology, embryology, treatment and prevention for each anomaly. Where known, the molecular or other pathogenetic basis for the malformation is given. Most anomalies are illustrated by photographs or drawings. Specific malformations are linked to syndromes through the extensive use of differential diagnosis tables. Over a decade has passed since the first edition of this book was published, and the revised edition fully incorporates the advances made in the field during the intervening years. It reflects new understanding of human developmental biology that has emerged from molecular, cytogenetic, and biochemical studies; new observations by clinicians as well as enhanced diagnostic and prevention capacities; and more accurate and comprehensive epidemiology. By condensing much of the information presented in the first volume of the previous edition, and exercising rigorous editorial control, the editors and contributors have managed to update the book while reducing it to a single volume.

From reviews of the first edition:Provides an excellent, up-to-date summary that is an important resource for any clinical geneticist... The chapters are well-illustrated and include lists of associated syndromes that can be used to narrow down a diagnosis for a patient, or provide a broad review that is useful for medical rounds. This set is well worth the investment. (Annals of the Royal College of Physicians of Scotland)I am pleased to say that... 'field trials' have confirmed without doubt the excellence of this huge and scholarly work. It will be a key reference text for students, researchers, biomedical scientists, and clinicians, particularly clinical geneticists, paediatricians, and obstetricians. Extensive and up to date references are given and the vast number of illustrations and line diagrams are excellent... The editors are to be congratulated on their concept and design of these volumes... I really don't have any criticisms... I would strongly recommend that this book is used as a 'bench book' and is located in all clinical genetics departments; the hospital or university library should also contain a reference copy.
