Review

"Unique in its attempt to correlate fetal anomalies with the ultrasonic appearances of these pathologic changes. Many rare disorders are illustrated, thus complementing visually some of the data contained in the Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM). The drawings illustrate some of the more complex abnormalities. Tables and pathogenetic flow charts contribute to the completeness of the presentation." Doody’s Review ServiceG "This is a gem of a book. The title of the book does not do justice to the contents, because this is more than just an atlas. The wealth of information in this textbook is substantial...This textbook is the best I have seen on the topic of embryonic and fetal pathology. As an atlas, it far surpasses expectations. As a reference book and bench book, it should be on the bookshelf of everyone who has an interet in this area. I highly recommend this book to my surgical and pediatric pathology colleagues, neonatologists, and obstreticians. As much as one can enjoy a pathology textbook, I enjoyed this book very much and found it a pleasure to read." Archives of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine "This is a superb book...All those with an interest in normal and abnormal human development will welcome this book, and every department where perinatal autopsies are performed should buy one."

Book Description

Exhaustively illustrated in color with over 1000 photographs, figures, histopathology slides, and sonographs, this uniquely authoritative atlas provides the clinician with a visual guide to diagnosing congenital anomalies in every organ system in the human fetus. It covers the full range of embryo and fetal pathology, from point of death, autopsy and ultrasound, through specific syndromes, intrauterine problems, organ and system defects to multiple births and conjoined twins. Gross pathologic findings are correlated with sonographic features to confirm visually the diagnoses for all organ systems.
