Using a quick-reference, encyclopedic format, the latest edition of this book presents the anesthetic implications of a plethora of distinct syndromes, with up-to-date information, complete and current bibliographies, and more than 140 clinical photographs.

Key features:
- Presents each syndrome in an easy-to-follow format: name, synonym(s), and common and uncommon manifestations in each organ system, followed by anesthetic considerations, including which syndromes have no anesthetic implications.
- Lists syndromes and synonyms alphabetically, and cross-references synonyms for quick look-up.
- Incorporates an overview of the pathology and relevant clinical findings for each syndrome, and highlights considerations in perioperative management.
