Since the first edition's publication, advances have been made in diagnosis, understanding, and treatment of genetic syndromes, resulting in the potential for a higher quality of life for individuals affected.

Management of Genetic Syndromes, Second Edition incorporates all the most recent developments in knowledge about and management of the most common genetic syndromes seen in children and adults. Expanded to cover twenty-five new syndromes, this comprehensive new edition also features thorough updates of chapters from the first edition.

  • Incidence
  • Etiology and pathogenesis
