A Handbook of Clinical Genetics focuses on clinical genetics and the growing demand for genetic counseling. This book begins by introducing issues regarding changes in morbidity and mortality; fall in birth rate; advances in technology and treatment; and complex social changes. Other topics covered include genetic and environmental factors in disease; the genetic code; pedigree information; inheritance patterns; genetic counseling; prenatal diagnosis of genetic disease; special problems; and ethical issues and future developments. The last portion of this text is devoted to a glossary of unfamiliar medical terms, list of recommended books for further research and study, and appendices consist of a case on genetic counseling for Down's syndrome. This handbook is suitable for nurses, medical students, and doctors needing an introduction to clinical genetics.
