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.

Readers will find practical information on common and uncommon manifestations in the major anatomic areas, as well as what you need to know for safe and effective anesthesia of both children and adults.

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.
