About this title:
Connecting a physical abnormality to a possible genetic condition is a daunting and inexact task for any physician, whether a primary care provider, non-geneticist specialist, or fellowship-trained geneticist.
Comprising 31 clinical protocols from the world’s foremost clinical geneticists, Signs and Symptoms of Genetic Conditions provides a practical manual for the diagnosis and management of common human genetic conditions based on their presenting signs and/or symptoms. Each chapter examines a specific clinical finding and leads the user through a step-by-step approach to a differential diagnosis.
To maximize clinical utility, this handbook features:
- Expert, symptom-led chapters from the world's most qualified physicians in each area to guide users from nonspecific presenting symptoms to differential diagnoses
- Succinct presentation of protocols with prominent, easy-to-follow flowchart diagrams that graphically depict the diagnostic approach
- Concise recommendations for laboratory and/or imaging studies accompanying each sign/symptom
- Follow-up health supervision and management strategies for the most common conditions associated with each presenting sign or symptom, and for each differential diagnosis
Readership: Whether you are a student, resident, or seasoned clinician, Signs and Symptoms of Genetic Conditions will serve as a frontline resource for navigating differential diagnosis.
