For clinicians and technicians in fetal medicine and neonatal care, such as clinical geneticists, pediatric radiologists, maternal-fetal specialists, pathologists, and obstetricians, Hall (pediatric radiology, U. of London, UK) et al. present information on rare skeletal disorders, including skeletal dysplasias and malformation syndromes, through specific cases and perinatal images. After chapters on normal fetal skeletal growth and development and diagnosis of fetal skeletal dysplasias, they detail 132 conditions (based on the 2010 international nosology and classification of genetic skeletal disorders) and their synonyms, incidence, genetics, age at presentation, clinical features, prenatal ultrasound and postnatal radiological features, bone histology, prognosis, and differential diagnosis, with images showing different modalities and gross and histopathology findings when available. The table of contents consists of a chart of information on mode of inheritance, the Mendelian Inheritance in Man number, the locus, the mutated gene, and the affected protein. Published by Radcliffe Publishing, UK, and distributed in the US by BookMasters.
