Book Description

August 17, 2005 0721606156 978-0721606156 6th
The completely revised and updated New Edition of this definitive text-now in full color! Long known as the source to consult for guidance on diagnosis, prognosis, plan management, and genetic counseling, this easy-to-use reference focuses on the patterns of human defects caused by inborn errors in morphogenesis as opposed to defects caused by mechanical problems. It provides a wealth of information on normal and abnormal morphogenesis * minor anomalies and their relevance * clinical approaches to specific diagnoses * and normal standards of measurement for the entire spectrum of disorders. Each chapter includes a description of the specific abnormality-including occasional associated abnormalities-natural history, etiology, and references. On opposing pages are several descriptive photographs and line drawings of either an individual with the abnormality or specific features of the abnormality.
  • Provides over 1,450 photographs and illustrations to depict each malformation-many from the personal collections of Drs. Smith and Jones-to aid readers in diagnosis.
  • Uses a consistent chapter format to help readers quickly and easily find information on any given disorder
  • Offers the most current coverage available on existing disorders and their molecular basis, plus the very latest information on virtually any genetic or physiological malformation.
  • Offers a clearer understanding of abnormalities through the use of more than 1,000 new full-color figures and photographs.
  • Includes updates for every disorder, with extensive new information on the molecular basis of malformations as well as new clinical information for many disorders.
  • Covers 16 additional commonly seen disorders, including Deletion 1p36 syndrome * Deleletion 22q13 syndrome * Meier-Gorlin Syndrome * Short Syndrome * 3-C Syndrome * GAPO Syndrome * Lenz Microphthalmia Syndrome * Muenke Craniosynostosis * Torriello-Carey Syndrome * Mandibulo-Acral Syndrome * Mowat-Wilson Syndrome * Ulnar-Mammary Syndrome * Kaufman-McKusick Syndrome * Smith-Maginess Syndrome * Wiedeman-Rautenstrauch Syndrome * and Shprintzen-Golberg Syndrome.
  • Presents a wealth of new Growth Charts, plus complete revisions to existing Growth Charts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, easily assimilated clinical reference October 15, 1998
Format:Hardcover
This is a really outstanding clinical reference. It is of particular relevance to genetic counselors, pediatric specialists, dermatologists, and other clinicians who frequently encounter patients with congenital anomalies and uncommon syndromes. Although the clinical photos are in black and white (no color), they are well chosen to illustrate the features of the (many) syndromes discussed. I have seen several texts that cover roughly the same subject matter as Smith's Recognizable Patterns of Human Malformation; however, none are as comprehensive or nearly as easy to use. I expect this text will replace MEDLINE as my initial go-to reference when I need to get info regarding patients with uncommon congenital syndromes. This text would be a bargain at twice the price! I recommend it most highly

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Resource April 25, 2003
Format:Hardcover
This is the best book about congenital malformations available for general pediatricians. It is highly accessible and fairly easy to use. It really helps one put together a differential diagnosis for children with dysmorphic features. The price makes it a bargain that should be in every general pediatric clinic.

I do have one suggested improvement: This book is perfect for conversion into a searchable CD-ROM so that one could simply key in the list of features and get back a list of possible syndromes ranked by likelihood.

UPDATE 2007: The latest edition continues the book's heritage of excellence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every doctor that sees newborns and kids needs one July 27, 2005
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As a family practice physician this book was not part of the required reading for us. We had textbooks we were provided and the only time I ran across this text was when I rotated with a genetics specialist that counseled daily on children with syndroms and malformations. I ran across just enough situations like this in the 6 years of family medicine that I ordered one for me - not only is a great reference book, but humbling to read sections from - its not so amazing that there are such a dizzying number of malformations and syndromes that can go wrong in human development - it is amazing that it usually works perfectly. This book will keep a lot of perspective in view for docs like me that face barrages of complains about colds, zits, and back pains.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best February 11, 2007
Format:Hardcover
I am a neonatal nurse and have been using this book in successive editions for years and years and years. It's one of the few books that are easier to use than the internet when one admits a "funny looking kid" (I do not intend this to be a joke). The illustrations are so good that you can look at the book, then remember it when you admit a baby with a syndrome, perhaps years later. Another reviewer says he feels a sense of awe that, given that so much can go wrong, there are actually any healthy babies. I can relate to that! One of the things that can mitigate the recognition of a nasty set of congenital abnormalities is to be able to recognise them and name them, and have an idea about the aetiology and prognosis - it gives you back a bit of the power that you lost when you discovered the baby was abnormal - and that means you can help the parents.

Good stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good resource material for clinical genetics August 24, 2007
Format:Hardcover
Nice guidebook to have to help you study cases of human malformation. Each syndrome comes with text information and corresponding pictures. The pictures help you relate a particular syndrome with actual patients. It also has an index which shows some of the more common dysmorphic features that you may see and lists the syndromes that usually present with these features. The only drawback is that the information about some syndromes are sometimes lacking, so you will need another reference to expound on these cases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding work! July 21, 2007
Format:Hardcover
I am not a physician, nor a pediatrician, and the full explanation, the references, the completeness of the book, full of images, specific and general at the same time makes it one of the best books anyone interested in the subject can hope for. The explanations of the mechanisms are also concise and clear.
