Editorial Reviews


"Genetic Disorders and the Fetus: Diagnosis, Prevention, and Treatment gives exemplary treatment to the topics advertised on the cover. . . Instead, it will serve as a valuable resource in cleaner locales - in the office while analyzing the prenatal workup of a fetus about to be examined or while trying to understand the clinical discussion at maternal-fetal medicine conferences." (Pediatric & Developmental Pathology, 2011)


From the Back Cover

Brand new edition of the world’s leading text on prenatal diagnosis

This 6th Edition of Genetic Disorders and the Fetus maintains it’s pre-eminence as the major repository of facts about prenatal diagnosis. It provides a critical analysis and synthesis of established and new knowledge based on the long experience of authorities in their respective fields. A broad international perspective is presented through authoritative contributions from authors in 11 countries. All chapters and guidelines have been updated to reflect contemporary practice. New chapters have been introduced on:

  • The use of chromosomal microarrays in prenatal diagnosis
  • The social, legal and public policy issues with special reference to international approaches
  • The important peroxisomal and related fatty acid oxidation disorders

Genetic Disorders and the Fetus: Diagnosis, Prevention and Treatment is an essential resource for all engaged in prenatal genetic diagnosis, especially obstetricians, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, medical geneticists, genetic counsellors, and pediatricians, but also many other specialties.

Quotes from Previous Editions:

"For several years, Genetic Disorders and the Fetus has belonged with the classic textbooks on the shelf of every geneticist involved with genetic medicine . . . An updated source of guidance and a major repository of knowledge for those of us practicing fetal medicine and involved in human fetal research"
—New England Journal of Medicine

"A definitive volume on the subject . . . This book should be viewed as a major text in the field of prenatal medicine and genetic disorders of the fetus."
American Journal of Medical Genetics

"An excellent book . . . Every self-respecting prenatal diagnostic unit should have ready access to it."

"Long considered a standard reference in the area of prenatal diagnosis, this text is notable for its breadth and continues to be a readable, well-organized, comprehensive resource for clinicians in fields related to the care of the fetus and newborn."
Journal of the American Medical Association

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While I have no doubt that the print version of this textbook is as excellent as reviews suggest, the Kindle version contains a mind-boggling number of errors. Clearly, the Kindle version was never reviewed by an editor. On a single page, aneuploidy appears as "a neuploidy," conceptus as "concept us," and ascertainment as "as certainment." On that same page, there are several random periods where no periods are called for, and a table-style list appears, which was so badly formatted, that it makes no sense at all at first glance. It should read:
1. Availability and use of expertise in prenatal diagnostic ultrasound
2. Maternal fever or use of hot tub in the first 6 weeks of pregnancy

Instead, what we see is:
1. Availability and use of expertise in prenatal
2. Maternal fever or use of hot tub in the first 6
3. Diagnostic ultrasound
4. weeks of pregnancy

Needless to say, it's a lot of work to read and considerably lowers my faith in Kindle as reliable source for this kind of material. For a $10 novel, I don't mind a few errors, but at nearly $200, this is ridiculous.
