Overview


Fifty-two authorities have collaborated to produce Human Malformations, a new reference work on birth defects. The coverage is encyclopedic in scope, including all significant human anomalies. Written for physicians and surgeons who evaluate and treat infants and children with birth defects, this work will also serve as a useful resource to all students of human development. This work is divided into two volumes. Volume I contains 15 chapters dealing with the evaluation and understanding of birth defects. Contributors from embryology, experimental teratology, anthropology, genetics, and the medical specialties combine to give a broad perspective. The history of concepts about malformations is discussed, as well as contemporary principles and practice. Volume II (37 chapters) gives detailed accounts of human anomalies arranged by anatomical systems. Each section has the same well-organized format, permitting the reader to easily find information on the incidence, diagnosis, pathogenesis, and causes of human anomalies. The occurrence of each anomaly in various associations and syndromes is documented, often in table form. Each chapter concludes with the natural history, approaches to treatment, and prevention strategies. These two volumes are generously illustrated with 850 photographs, anatomical drawings, and radiographs. Over 8,000 references are cited to permit the reader ready access to the sources of information used to produce this text. Together, the text, illustrations, and bibliographics provide readers with a uniquely valuable and comprehensive resource on human birth defects.

This book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joel Charrow, MD (Children's Memorial Hospital)
Description: This is a comprehensive presentation of major human malformations with precise definitions, good descriptions, and extensive discussion of etiology, occurrence, associated anomalies, and management strategies by multiple contributors.
Purpose: The authors' stated intention is to consider human malformations from a clinical perspective and to examine their development and underlying pathology and related anomalies and syndromes to advance the understanding of birth defects and to better assist the clinician in the care of patients and their families. The book meets these objectives.
Audience: This book is written primarily for practitioners and students of clinical genetics, but it is useful for all who seek a better understanding of the etiology and significance of individual malformations. The authors and contributors are acknowledged experts, and their discussions are lucid and illuminating.
Features: The contributors' make ample and helpful use of good quality black-and-white photographs, reproductions of radiographic, MR and ultrasonographic images, line drawings, flow charts, and tables. The numerous tables of syndromes associated with major anomalies are encyclopedic. References are profuse, pertinent, and survey relevant literature through 1990. The book is well organized, with major malformations grouped by organ system. The table of contents and indexes are helpful.
Assessment: The book makes a valuable contribution to the delineation and understanding of birth defects. This book is not a clinical atlas of syndromes. It is a compendium of single malformations in which each is considered in a common format that includes definition, diagnosis, etiology and distribution, prognosis, treatment, and prevention. It should be on the bookshelves of practitioners of clinical genetics and in the reference section of all medical libraries.
