Editorial Reviews

Twenty-three contributions are grouped in three sections. The first contains introductory chapters presenting clinical perspectives in medical genetics, and discussing naturally occurring genetic skin diseases in animals, and the skin before birth. The second section, the bulk of the volume, comprises chapters on 16 specific disease groups, among them: epidermolysis bullosa, the ichthyoses, metabolic disorders, and pigmentary disorders. The final four chapters discuss genetic counselling, prenatal diagnosis, preimplantation diagnosis, and the future of gene therapy. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
