Lewis B. Holmes
This extensively illustrated reference work is designed for health professionals who care for newborn infants including neonatologists, pediatricians, NICU nurses, pediatric neurologists, pediatric surgeons, geneticists, and genetic counselors. It describes the most common malformations and draws the information needed for a full diagnostic evaluation and discussion of treatment options and genetic counseling from many sources.
The text also covers minor anomalies, birthmarks and includes dozens of charts of anthropologic measurements, material that is needed in the initial physical examination to describe an infant's physical features. With over 400 photographs and original illustrations, Dr. Holmes has created an authoritative, well organized, and easy to use reference guide to common malformations of the infant, which will become an invaluable tool in hospitals and neonatal clinics across the world.
