Dr. Chen stocks his nearly forty years of medical genetics perform in a complete pictorial atlas of just about 250 genetic problems, malformations, and malformation syndromes. the writer offers a close define for every disease, describing its genetics, simple defects, scientific positive factors, diagnostic exams, and counseling matters, together with recurrence hazard, prenatal analysis, and administration. a variety of colour pictures of prenatal ultrasounds, imagings, cytogenetics, and postmortem findings illustrate the medical positive factors of sufferers at various a long time, sufferers with various levels of severity, and the optimum diagnostic concepts. The issues brought up are supplemented by means of case histories and diagnostic affirmation by means of cytogenetics, biochemical, and molecular innovations, while to be had. The Atlas of Genetic analysis and Counseling can help all physicians to appreciate and realize genetic illnesses and malformation syndromes and higher evaluation, information, and deal with affected sufferers. during this new version, forty seven extra genetic issues are additional, in addition to vast updates made to the former problems. New illustrations, as earlier version, can be supplemented by way of case and family members historical past, medical gains, and laboratory info, particularly molecular confirmation.
