With the advent of genetic engineering and mapping of the human genome, public awareness concerning the contributions that genetic disorders make to illness or death has increased significantly. The fields of human and medical genetics have continued to expand and offer new ways of understanding, preventing, and managing patients with genetic disorders. At the core of the genetic approach are the ideas of anticipation and prevention, which are essential for modern medical practice. Clinical Genetics: A Short Course explains the importance of being able to anticipate disease based on individual characteristics or a family history, and then providing the necessary measures to forestall further complications. Each informative chapter commences with a case presentation and an explanation of medical terms. As the book progresses and new concepts are introduced, each case is updated. Clinical Genetics clarifies that, although individual genetic disease may be rare, it is an inescapable part of medicine. Text contains: * Both basic principles and differential diagnosis and management * Case-oriented problems, including answers and solutions * Over 300 illustrations to clarify clinical cases * Actual patient material * Glossary of genetic and medical terminology Clinical Genetics: A Short Course emphasizes clinical, rather than traditional human genetics, and is a vital resource for medical, clinical, and human geneticists, as well as other health care professionals.

There are two new themes to medical education today: the integration of the basic and clinical sciences and the use of case histories and problem solving to encourage active learning. This is the first genetics text for medical students to incorporate these major changes. Based on the Harvard New Pathways model, this book integrates molecular and clinical genetics, organized around case histories and didactic text, which covers the basic principles of today's genetics. Each case history is explored from three points of view: classical genetic, molecular genetic, and clinical. Each chapter ends with a clinical problem which will illustrate and emphasize the points already learnt. The book progresses from simple to more complex concepts emphasizing important principles and setting groundwork for application of molecular and clinical genetics to the everyday practice of medicine.
