Brand new edition of the world’s leading text on prenatal diagnosis

This 6th Edition of Genetic Disorders and the Fetus maintains it’s pre-eminence as the major repository of facts about prenatal diagnosis. It provides a critical analysis and synthesis of established and new knowledge based on the long experience of authorities in their respective fields.  A broad international perspective is presented through authoritative contributions from authors in 11 countries. All chapters and guidelines have been updated to reflect contemporary practice. New chapters have been introduced on:

  • The use of chromosomal microarrays in prenatal diagnosis

  • The social, legal and public policy issues with special reference to international approaches

  • The important peroxisomal and related fatty acid oxidation disorders

Extensive tables and clear illustrations assist in differential diagnosis, gene identification and diagnostic modes. The recognition of many new and unresolved challenges should provide inspiration for novel research initiatives. The guidance provided and the insights and perspectives of these authors make this volume a valuable and indispensable resource for all whose focus is securing fetal health through prenatal diagnosis.

Genetic Disorders and the Fetus: Diagnosis, Prevention and Treatment is an essential resource for all engaged in prenatal genetic diagnosis, especially obstetricians, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, medical geneticists, genetic counsellors, and pediatricians, but also many other specialties.
