This is the fourth edition of a most comprehensive text book of medical
genetics. The explosion of knowledge in human genetics has made it necessary
to issue a new edition only 6 years after the publication of the third edition.
There has been a minor change in the editorship, and the contributor
list has expanded to include some 300 experts. Many old names have been replaced
by new ones, which presumably reflects the effort of keeping the content up-to-date.
