What little is known about the rare genetic disease popularly but wrongly associated with The Elephant Man, is presented in terms that people with no medical training can decipher, and clinicians can relate to their knowledge. Focuses on the care of the patient with any of a wide range of symptoms, while waiting for the molecular geneticists to track down the gene and figure out how it works.
