The Bedside Dysmorphologist is a thoughtful clinical guide to common--and often quite subtle--congenital malformations in clinical exam.
Organized by area of the body, each section provides the user with a concise, illustrated roadmap for assessment and differential diagnosis of highly nuanced elements of dysmorphology. Narrated by a world-class clinical geneticist and enriched with a library of original photos, it provides a safety net for physicians encountering abnormalities in physical exam.
No other book in the market sets out to assist the pediatrician and other non-geneticists in how to interpret the clinical signs in syndromology and to lead the clinician to sensible conclusions, both in terms of clinical management and in terms of initiating of appropriate investigation. This title distills a lifetime of clinical experience, nuance, and variation into a manageable volume, one that will instill confidence in clinicians and guide them through this arcane area of medicine.
