Editorial Reviews

Review

"I like the idea of Willie Reardon's dysmorphology book directed to the non-expert. It may also be useful for teaching clinical genetics fellows. The purpose for such a book is to arrive at a diagnosis and thus I think it will be essential not only to have clear descriptions, definitions, and illustrations, but also a differential diagnosis for each of the anomalies. In addition to the excellent descriptions that will allow a proper identification of the physical abnormality, there would be real value in having a differential diagnosis. Certainly, the idea of a book with exceptionally good new photographic illustrations is an excellent idea. Thus, I am enthusiastic about it and don't think that it really does overlap with previous books."-- Judith Hall, Professor of Medical Genetics, University of British Columbia
"The book proposed by Dr. Reardon will fill a gap pediatricians and other nonspecialists find in the literature and their training. Most existing textbooks and reference books on Dysmorphology are very technical, deal with etiological theories, or show the extreme of the spectrum, those cases that are so unusual that one rarely sees them. Some of them have poor quality illustrations. Dr. Reardon proposes a practical book, one that will be illustrated with high quality figures and very comprehensive in nature, a book that will help the nonspecialist determine whether a child has or does not have a dysmorphic feature. Dr. Reardon has the credentials to do this and the very complete Table of Contents confirms that this will be an extremely useful addition to our bookshelves."--Diego Wyszynski, Genetics Program, Boston University School of Medicine
"Unusually for abook on dysmorphology, this compact tome can accompany the interested clinician on ward rounds without intruding on the bedside manner, yet is packed full of interesting and helpful information, as well as a wealth of illustrations (on every facing page), without which it is impossible to be a student of the subject...Reardon is one of a rare breed of clinician--a truly accomplished dysmorphologist--and I have been enlightened, from learning the meaning of 'poliosis' to being alerted to rare syndromes that are usually beyond the reach of my personal radar. There is something in this book for dysmorphologists at all levels of interest and experience."--Peter Turnpenny, Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, for British Journal of Hospital Medicine

By J. K. D. Dios on February 17, 2008
Format: Paperback
Provides the terminologies (and the pictures) that you need to describe dysmorphisms you might encounter in your pediatric (or adult) patients. It also gives a list of possible syndromes where you may encounter the said findings. However, I think it would have been better if the author also added general guides to aid description per body part to help the inexperienced reader distinguish normal from the dysmorphism.

This book has a very clever approach which focuses at the differential diagnosis in the difficult field of clinical genetics and so it can be proved as a very useful tool while reading relevant matters.
It is written in a very simple language and it is pleasant to read. The pictures are of high quality and give you an idea of descriptions that you could only imagine before, if you don't have much clinical experience. I recommend it.

Good for a neonatal fellow when some dysmorphology is noticed in the first physical exam of a sick pre-term or infant.
