Medical Genetics in Pediatric Practice is the pediatrician's primer for molecular biology, genetic testing, and the approach to a child with a suspected genetic disorder. This concise book guides the primary care physician through recognising genetic disorders, taking a complete genetic history, constructing a pedigree, and when to refer.

A glossary of genetic terms and a list of critical resources make this book a must have for all primary care physicians. The book includes images of common minor anomalies that should alert the physician to a possible genetic condition.

MEDIA REVIEWS
94 - 4 Star Doody's Review!
Derived from the American Academy of Pediatrics Policy Guidelines, this is a detailed compilation of current genetic information with magnificent illustrations designed to be used as a consultative source for pediatricians.
Dr. Saul and the unique group of contributors suggest guidelines that can be used by pediatricians to apply current genetic knowledge in their practices. This is a much-needed service and a highly difficult task. The authors have opted for an all-inclusive approach which places the book at risk of not being as practical for general pediatricians as it could be. On the other hand, it is a wonderfully written medical genetics book that reviews basic concepts and promotes the involvement of general pediatricians in the treatment and recognition of genetic disorders.
The American Academy of Pediatrics endorses this publication as a resource that should be available to general pediatricians to help them incorporate medical genetics into their practice. The target audience is clearly pediatricians in general. However, the detailed information the book includes may also be helpful to medical genetics residents and pediatric residents early in their education. Dr. Saul is a well-known medical geneticist who has recruited a high quality team of contributors to the book, all recognized as experts in the field.
The book moves from basic science to clinical genetics, covering basic concepts of human genetics in the early chapters, clinical genetics in the midsection, and concluding with genetic counseling and additional resources. Of particular interest is the dysmorphology section, which is beautifully illustrated with wonderful clinical photographs. Although there are not clearly innovative features, the glossary is extensive and very useful, as are the unique appendixes such as the initial genetics screening evaluation.
This is a wonderful, well-planned book. This is an invaluable tool, and it should be on the must-have list for all those interested in current information on human and medical genetics.
