Overview

Outlining the most important concepts of clinical embryology, the second edition of this full color atlas gives a well-illustrated overview of human development before birth. Each chapter has been thoroughly revised with the most up-to-date information. Accompanied by authoritative descriptions, this superb resource provides a step-by-step review of normal and abnormal embryonic and fetal development through hundreds of color photographs, 3-dimensional drawings, electron micrographs, sonograms, MR images, and pen-and-ink sketches. It also includes photographs and tables indicating periods when tissue and organ formations may be affected by teratogenic agents.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Marletta Reynolds
This is an exquisitely illustrated color atlas of human development, with a clinical focus. The purpose is to provide a pictorial review of human development from conception to delivery for the normal and abnormal fetus and to identify the effects of teratogenic agents at different stages of development. Health care professionals and students who are interested in the fetus, infant, and child can use this atlas. It can also be used to educate their patients and the parents of their patients. The authors are experts in their own right and have solicited the assistance of many to enhance the contents of this book. The atlas includes photographs, drawings, electron micrographs, sonograms, MRIs, and pen and ink sketches to describe the stages of normal and abnormal development. Some photographs are color enhanced. The book is well organized and proceeds in a logical fashion. The text is clear and written at the appropriate level for its intended audience. The index and references are detailed and timely. This atlas fills the need for a visually oriented text on clinical embryology. By using state-of-the-art illustrations, the authors have created a resource that has a large audience in and out of the health profession. The extensive variety of illustrations greatly enhances the explanations of the sometimes difficult to understand concepts in human development.

This is a second edition atlas of human development. The purpose is to serve as a reference for healthcare professionals specializing in human development. It is intended for those involved in fields directly related to human development such as clinical genetics and embryopathology. General embryology is covered in the first five chapters, and in each of the remaining ten chapters the authors deal with a specific organ system. Each chapter has a brief textual description of the process of normal development as well as the errors in development that result in malformations. Since this is an atlas, illustrations form the greater part of the material presented. The authors use a variety of illustrations to demonstrate both normal embryology and developmental abnormalities, including line drawings, pictures of actual embryos and fetuses, both light and scanning electron micrographs, and ultrasound images. Overall, the atlas is a valuable aid for the audience for which it is intended. The textual material is very current and the authors incorporate newer concepts of development. The text is written with the assumption that the reader has a basic understanding of general embryology, however, and a novice would find the material somewhat cryptic. The illustrations are for the most part very clear and informative. Particularly useful are the pictures of actual embryos at the different Carnegie stages of development with corresponding line drawings that have labels of the different structures seen in the embryos. There are a great many informative photographs of actual defects as well. The only negative aspect is that some of the ultrasound images lack sufficient labeling, so it isdifficult to orient oneself. Line drawings similar to those used with the embryos would be an asset. This atlas is a valuable addition to a field that requires new and updated reference materials on a regular basis.
