Overview

Here's the New Edition of the most comprehensive, up-to-date account of the normal and abnormal development of the embryo and fetus. Every chapter has been thoroughly revised to reflect new findings in research and their clinical applications. The 6th Edition now includes full-color photographs, MR and ultrasound images, and all-new 3-D figures illustrating difficult concepts, and showing the effects of drugs and viruses on the fetus and how anomalies develop.

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

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael F. Dauzvardis, PhD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This is a clear and concise treatise on embryology with a special focus on clinically related topics. This sixth edition represents a considerable improvement over the fifth edition, published in 1993.
Purpose: Geared toward first or second-year medical students, the purpose is to enlighten the reader about the intricacies of embryological development as well as introduce the student to the molecular basis of development as it applies to clinically relevant issues.
Audience: Although targeted toward novice medical students, practitioners in the field of obstetrics and gynecology would find this work a useful review and reference tool. Undergraduate students in biology, nursing, and other health related fields could also benefit from its use.
Features: The authors succeed in highlighting the key events of human development from gametogenesis to birth. They accomplish this journey through the use of simplistic, yet informative illustrations and unencumbered text. A sprinkling of scanning electron micrographs coupled with clinical correlations and study questions help to punctuate important facts and processes. Five beautifully illustrated timetables found in the appendix serve as ready reference to salient facts.
Assessment: This is, indeed, an easy-to-read account of human embryogenesis. The authors, by virtue of increasing the amount of clinical material, adding new color photography, including more scanning electron micrographs, expanding sections on teratology, and including simplified information on molecular mechanisms, have perhaps set a new standard for teaching embryology to first-year medical students. In a time when medical students are required to digest even more rote facts and are also thrown even earlier into the clinical fray, this book should serve as a welcome addition to their educational war chest.
