Soon to be published in its Third Edition, this now established reference work has been expanded to include additional syndromes and further information to aid the reader in contacting self-help groups.

Dictionary of Syndromes and Inherited Disorders provides a practical reference for those with a syndrome or inherited disorder and for their caregivers. It describes the disorders and problems of both child and adult, and considers the day-to-day management of these conditions. It is written in non-technical language, so as to be comprehensible for a general audience, but with enough detail for the medical and nursing professions. The text is well indexed and has an extensive glossary.
