Abstract

This comprehensive resource in the study and investigation of bone dysplasias is a must-have resource for radiologists, medical geneticists, orthopedic surgeons, pediatricians, and genetic counselors caring for patients who present with a great number of skeletal disorders, many of which are new conditions that have only been recently identified. Bone Dysplasias contains more than 100 chapters on newer entities to assist the practitioner in narrowing a group of diagnostic possibilities to a specific disorder; over 2,500 diagnostic radiographs with concise clinical and biological information on a total of 275 rare constitutional skeletal diseases, and concise data on the etiopathogenesis, natural course, complications, and differential diagnosis of rare conditions.
