Overview

Certain disorders tend to occur in some ethnic groups more than others. This followup to the acclaimed Jewish Genetic Disorders ("superb guide...outstanding writing and well-organized text...current and comprehensive...exceptional" -- Library Journal) catalogs and explains genetic disorders that have been noted to occur frequently or exclusively in Arab populations. The disorders are categorized by the bodily system or function they affect: blood, cardiovascular, central nervous system, connective tissue, endocrine system, metabolic, neuromuscular, respiratory, sensory, skeletal, or skin. Each disorder is examined in terms of symptoms, frequency, cause, the occasional "Faustian Bargain," diagnosis, transmission, treatment, and prevention. References for more information are also provided. The book concludes with information on genetic counseling for Arab-Americans.
