This manual on pediatric autopsy is organized by types of autopsy rather than organ system. The 20 chapters explain perinatal autopsy, techniques, and classifications; placental examination; the fetus at less than 15 weeks gestation; stillbirth and intrauterine growth restriction; hydrops fetalis; the pathology of twinning and higher multiple pregnancy; patterns in genetic conditions; the metabolic disease autopsy; the abnormal heart; the central nervous system; significant congenital abnormalities of the respiratory, digestive, and renal systems; skeletal dysplasias; congenital tumors; complications of prematurity; intrapartum and neonatal death; sudden unexpected death in infancy; infections and malnutrition; the role of magnetic resonance imaging and radiology in post mortems; and the forensic post mortem. Contributors are pathologists and other clinicians from North America, Europe, and Australia. The DVD contains all illustrations from the book. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
