Primary hyperlipidemias; an atlas of investigation and diagnosis.


Primary hyperlipidemias; an atlas of investigation and diagnosis.

Davignon, Jean and Robert Dufour.

Clinical Publishing


142 pages




Focusing on patient evaluation, mechanism of disease, and diagnosis, this reference for professionals and advanced students draws on a rich collection of color and b&w photos, explanatory diagrams, and other medical imaging to explore the range of primary hyperlipidemias and related gene and protein structures for important mutations. Coverage includes common and less common diseases referred to the lipid clinic. Physicians can use the book to identify and diagnose the entire spectrum of primary lipid disorders at the earliest possible stage, relating the observed signs of diseases to the underlying metabolic pathogenesis. The book also shows how these disorders may disrupt other organ systems, sometimes without any symptoms being manifested, and sometimes with symptoms initially presented to specialists in diverse fields such as rheumatology, dermatology, orthopedics, and ophthalmology. Davignon and Dufour are both affiliated with the Hyperlipidemia and Atherosclerosis Research Group at the Clinical Research Institute of Montreal, Canada.
