Genetic Consultations in the Newborn Illustrated Edition 2019
“The definitive work in genetic evaluation of newborns. I cannot recommend it strongly enough.” -Judith G. Hall
As demand continues to exceed availability when it comes to clinical geneticists, Genetic Consultations in the Newborn offers an essential new resource for practitioners everywhere: a streamlined diagnostic manual that connects subtle symptoms of newborn dysmorphology to their differential diagnosis.
Comprising more than 60 chapters organized by system and symptom, this book facilitates fast, expert navigation from recognition to management in syndromes that manifest during the newborn period. Richly illustrated and packed with pearls of practical wisdom from the authors’ decades of practice, it empowers readers to recognize the outward signs and symptoms crucial for an effective diagnosis.
For geneticists, neonatologists, pediatricians, and anyone else who cares for infants in their first days of life, Genetic Consultations in the Newborn provides an essential and unmatched resource for navigating one of the most challenging areas of clinical practice. It should not be missed.
“Overall, it is a useful resource for practising neonatologists and the pediatricians requiring a genetic consultation for the care of infants with common congenital malformations and related genetic syndromes. I recommend this book as a quick reference for initiating a genetic workup especially in areas that do not have access to the clinical genetics expertise.” — Neerja Gupta, The Indian Journal of Pediatrics
