This update to the 2000 edition contains 60 revised entries reflecting new empirical data and identifies an additional 135 congenital disorders, explaining their cause, symptoms, treatments, and projected outlook. Alphabetically organized, the entries range several paragraphs to several pages. Wynbrandt (Excruciating History of Dentistry) and Ludman (pediatrics, Dalhouise Univ., Nova Scotia) make the text and its biologically complex issues readily comprehensible to teens. The book not only complements but now also supersedes The Gale Encyclopedia of Genetic Disorders (2001). Highly recommended.
