Dr Sybert, a professor in the Departments of Dermatology and Medical Genetics at University of Washington, Seattle, out of her own frustration at not finding a readily available and easy-to-read text, has written a 675-page book dedicated to the skin and how it relates to and appears in genetic disorders. It is modeled after David Smith's Recognizable Patterns of Human Malformation , an often-referenced and comprehensive text, in scholarly and engaging discussions of clinical features, modes of inheritance, and prenatal and differential diagnoses.
