The genodermatoses are a group of inherited skin disorders forming a small but important proportion of the cases seen by dermatologists and paediatricians. Recent genetic developments have led to a better understanding of the underlying aetiology of the genodermatoses; understanding now beingapplied to improve management. John Harper has brought together an eminent and international team of contributors to produce a comprehensive handbook for those involved in the care of patients with genodermatoses. Following an introduction covering clinical perspectives, animals models and prenatal dermatology, the secondedition of the book approaches specific disease groups. Each of the sixteen chapters begins with a broad classification and a comprehensive and up-to-date review of the major diseases encompassing definition, genetics, clinical, features, pathology, course, prognosis and management, emphasizing thepractical approach throughout.
