Abstract

This first volume of the Oxford Monographs on Medical Genetics sets a high standard. The mass of most recent genetic information on the gastrointestinal tract has been assembled here in a most palatable form. The book is divided into 14 chapters, each consisting of about 40 items listed under bold headings. The pertinent literature is presented concisely, helpful diagrams or tables are reproduced, and unifying concepts are presented by the author.

Chapters are devoted to each of the major areas of the gastrointestinal tract (including liver and pancreas); separate chapters discuss peptic ulcer, Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, polyposis, jaundice, gastrointestinal hemorrhage, and systemic disorders which involve the gastrointestinal tract.
