9780195149609: Chromosome Abnormalities and Genetic Counseling (Oxford Monographs on Medical Genetics)

Chromosomal abnormalities can cause disability in children, and reproductive difficulty in parents. Many parents and couples seek genetic counseling in order to learn why they, or a relative, may have had a child with a particular collection of medical problems and/or intellectual disability. There may have been a history of multiple miscarriage, or infertility. They may want to know the outlook for a pregnancy, and what the risks might be. These and other questions concerning chromosome abnormalities are addressed in this standard text, which will be of interest to genetic counselors, medical geneticists, pediatricians and obstetricians, infertility specialists, and laboratory cytogeneticists.
This third edition has been thorougly updated, and is richly illustrated and fully referenced. New chapters have been written on preimplantation diagnosis and on reproductive risks due to environmental agents. The practical applications of recent advances in molecular cytogentics are noted. The book will give counselors the information that will enable them to help concerned parents accommodate to their particular "chromosomal situation", and to determine what may be, for them, the best course of action.

Review:


From reviews of previous editions:


"As one who has watched human cytogenetics from its birth in 1956 to its present extraordinary capabilities and who counsels families with chromosomal problems without ever having learned how to prepare a karyotype, I found this book a godsend...The writing is rigorous and often elegant. Gardner and Sutherland have the necessary knowledge to and provide useful assessments of the available information."--New England Journal of Medicine


"Chromosome Abnormalities and Genetic Counseling is a comprehensive text encompassing a full complement of cytogenetic information. Concepts are introduced such as basic cytogenetic elements, ethical and counseling issues and the handling of risk figures. A brief and concise review of chromosome pathology is included, enough to refresh the memory without insulting the reader's intelligence...This book is a wonderful asset to any library and can serve either as an educational text or as a reference."--Applied Cytogentics


"...this book has been written primarily for two groups of readers: the genetic counsellor (both medical and nonmedical) and the cytogenetic laboratory scientist. There are substantial sections of the book, however, which are of relevance to paediatricians...The authors are to be congratulated, not only because their book is one of the best of its kind, written in a clear and balanced manner and practically oriented !"--Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health
