About this book

Delay and mistakes in the diagnosis of inherited metabolic diseases may have devastating consequences. Reference laboratory data are scattered and clinical descriptions of rare conditions are hard to locate. This book describes 298 disorders, grouped into 35 chapters according to the type of condition. Within each group of disorders, chapters provide tables of pertinent clinical findings as well as reference and pathological values for crucial metabolites. Relevant metabolic pathways and diagnostic flow charts are included. There are four indices to make the book as user-friendly as possible: Disorders index, Signs and symptoms index, Organs index, and Tests index. The Physician's Guide provides paediatricians and other physicians with a unique aid to help them select the correct diagnosis from a bewildering array of complex clinical and laboratory data. The book includes a CD-ROM with search function.

"This book provides a summary text which condenses a wealth of information into a readily accessible form. … All paediatricians could benefit by using this book as an authoritative summary on metabolic disease. … The book would also be of great value to scientists and chemical pathologists working in the field of paediatric clinical biochemistry. … I found this book to be an excellence reference text that would be a very appropriate addition to any paediatrician’s library." (JC Coakley, Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health, Vol. 39 (8), 2003)

"This book, aimed at clinicians and laboratory personnel, describes the pathogenesis, clinical characteristics and laboratory diagnosis of the many known metabolic diseases. … The text is concise with many tables and figures. … A CD-ROM is included in this edition, helping the user to find diseases, using key words. A very useful book for every pediatric department." (Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology & Metabolism, Vol. 16 (2), 2003)
