About this book


Concise yet comprehensive, the chapters in this handbook are reader friendly, organized with clear sub-headings to quickly guide the reader to areas of interest. Excellent, detailed color photographs and diagrams illustrate and enhance the clinical pearls. Extensive use of tables and information boxes helps to simplify and summarize complex topics. A broad range of topics covered include:

-Chromosomal abnormalities

-Cranio-facial abnormalities

-Connective tissue disorders


-Metabolic disorders

-Infectious diseases

Also included is a comprehensive outline of the ocular manifestation of inherited diseases. This chapter provides a clinical snapshot of dozens of congenital conditions and their ocular manifestations.

An important aspect of Handbook of Pediatric Eye and Systemic Disease is patient education. Children with systemic disease and congenital disorders often have debilitating conditions without many viable treatment options. In these cases even the seasoned physician can feel uncomfortable when speaking with the family. An insightful and extremely sensitive chapter called "Breaking the News" provides practical assistance for the physician in communicating with the family.
