1365 pages




Building on the core reference first published over 30 years ago, this edition has been enhanced by some reorganization (two sections instead of three) and with inclusion of the OMIM number when appropriate so that the text is friendly for geneticists as well as radiologists and clinicians. Other enhancements include new tables, fuller citation of articles (inclusion of publication year), and web access for more precise searching of the contents. Full descriptions are offered for 1370 entities; brief descriptions of 4,500 entities, with references, are included in a gamuts section. The appendices contain the most recent Nosology and Classification of Genetic Disorders of Bone, and a chapter on the radiographic approach to the skeletal dysplasias (of value to novices as well as those taking the board examinations). Editor Lachman (emeritus UCLA School of Medicine) is affiliated with the International Skeletal Dysplasias Registry at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and with Stanford University.
