About this title

Synopsis:

Once considered a rare condition, hemochromatosis is now acknowledged as one of the commonest inherited disorders, affecting one in two hundred people of Western Caucasian descent and in the U.S. alone, over one million people. This is the most comprehensive clinical reference yet on hemochromatosis. The international team of 94 authors from twelve countries includes specialists in internal medicine, hematology, hepatology, genetics, biochemistry, and molecular biology. In 57 in-depth chapters they cover all aspects of pathophysiology, epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment. The text thoroughly explains the latest developments in the genetics of the disorder, including sections on screening, diagnostic techniques, and clinical complications. In addition, chapters consider social and ethical issues. With over 200 illustrations--including 40 color plates--this is today's definitive resource for all clinicians involved in the management of hemochromatosis, and for scientists interested in iron metabolism and iron overload.
