This book should be welcomed by physicians treating patients with birth defect syndromes as it is a notable departure from many of the standard books already published on this subject. Because these syndromes now number in the thousands rather than the hundreds, there has been a need for a book that classifies and evaluates them in depth and shows their relationships to each other in terms of groupings rather than as isolated entities. This interrelationship of the various symptomatologies of isolated syndromes has not been too frequently emphasized by former books on this subject, but Dr Cohen performs a heroic service in analyzing these interrelationships for us using an extremely good analytical stance, and, according to Dr Josef Warkany who writes the foreword to his book, Dr Cohen has "an encyclopedic knowledge of malformation syndromes."
The reader should be forewarned that this book does not deal in any manner whatsoever
