Neurogenetics: A Guide for Clinicians

JAMA Neurol. 2013;70(5):650. doi:10.1001/jamaneurol.2013.425

The role that genetics plays in clinical neurology continues to expand, and it is a daunting task to present this information to trainees and physicians, given the rapid pace at which this field is evolving. That being said, Professor Wood has put together a comprehensive book outlining important diseases with genetic etiologies in the field of clinical neurology. The topics covered include the genetics of Alzheimer disease, Huntington disease, parkinsonism, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, inherited neuropathies, muscle dystrophies, mitochondrial disorders, the epilepsies, and neurocutaneous diseases.
