This valuable text represents a comprehensive survey of well over 300 distinct inherited dermatologic conditions. Each disease entry follows a consistent format, allowing the clinician to quickly scan and access key information for differential diagnosis. Each entry contains sections devoted to dermatologic features, associated clinical abnormalities, histopathology, biochemical and molecular information, treatment, mode of inheritance and recurrence risk, prenatal diagnosis, and information on differential diagnosis. In addition the author has included support group listings and detailed annotated references which will be of invaluable benefit for clinicians. The book is lavishly illustrated with color photos to illustrate the conditions and conditions are grouped into categories reflecting the primary site of the major dermatologic features to aid the clinician encountering a condition for the first time. The material is well- written and presented in a highly engaging, reader-friendly voice which makes the content interesting and accessible to the geneticist and non-geneticist alike. This invaluable resource reflects the author's extensive clinical experience and expertise in genetics and dermatology that provides a clear and critical synthesis of information on the genetics of diseases affecting the skin. Any clinician faced with a patient in whom the possibility for a genetic disorder of the skin exists will find this book a practical tool of immense interest.

The new edition reflects a decade of new research advances in our understanding of the molecular basis for these conditions. Major additions have been added for over 150 of the entries, including information on treatment advances and advances in the natural history of disorders. All references have been updated as well as support group information and website resources.

About the Author:

Review:


"Genetic Skin Disorders is designed to be used by basic researchers looking for an easy to use overview, and by practicing clinicians. There are over 325 conditions described in this book arranged in a hierarchy that is logical and practical....Although there are several recent, less-expensive one-volume works covering inherited skin diseases, the overall strength of this work is its ready-reference ease of use. The articals are clear and well laid out. Its margins and typeface make it easy to use....Its breadth of subject coverage, use of photographs, and concise organization makes it a useful addition to any academic or clinical library collection."--E-STREAMS


"What distinguishes this work from the usual giant multiauthored good gray textbooks is the confidence bred from extensive clinical experience that is reflected in the critical commentary expressed in lively prose...The book is far better for the glimpses of the author's intellect."--Ervin H. Epstein, Jr., MD and Michelle Aszterbaum, MD, The New England Journal of Medicine


"Virginia Sybert has done an outstanding job on her book Genetic Skin Diosrders. She has produced a useable encyclopedic volume that will be greatly appreciated by students and practitioners in dermatology, pediatrics, and genetics....this is a reader-friendly, easy-to-use reference book, which is comprehensive, informative, up-to-date, instructive, and not least of all entertaining. The author's wit and wisdom is peppered throughout the book, which entices the reader to look at 'just one more section' before setting it down."--Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology


"This new guidebook provides an excellent means of retrieving...information rapidly....This book's clear outline, excellent illustrations and diagnostic reference tables will be invaluable to paediatricians as well as to clinical geneticists and dermatologists."--Paediatric Child Health Journal


"This is a comprehensive categorical compendium of genetic skin disorders. Each disorder has a differential diagnosis, clinical description, and annotated bibliography. Most have excellent photographs....This is a book that belongs in the office of every dermatologist, and in the library of every pediatric residency program next to SMITH. I recommend it without peer for dermatology board exams and recertification study. No other similar has the list of support groups, therapeutic suggestions, and the annoted bibliography found here." --Doody's


"It is more focused than an Internet search and has the additional advantage that you can quickly compare several disorders. In addition, there are brief therapy suggestions where the author clearly inidcates what has worked for her or what others have reported. As Dr. Sybert indicates in the introduction, there are a number of books on genetic skin diseases, but her aim was to produce a practical, personalized version. She has succeeded admirably." -- Pediatric Dermatology


"The second edition of Genetic Skin Disorders was long awaited. The book is well-illustrated with colour photographs and provides easily accessible information on inherited skin disorders." -- European Journal of Human Genetics
