Neurocutaneous Disorders Excerpt :
Neurocutaneous syndromes and hemangiomas encompass a substantial proportion of congenital or hereditary disorders, and present themselves through variable clinical features. Though often complex and multi-systemic, these disorders can mostly be diagnosed by simple visual inspections and strong clinical expertise. The purpose of this book is to compile in a single volume a comprehensive review of the historical perspective, the clinical features, the current knowledge concerning the pathogenesis, and the diagnostic and therapeutic strategies associated with these challenging disorders. Strong emphasis throughout is given on the biochemical, molecular, and genetic basis of these syndromes. The international editorial team have drawn upon contributions from colleagues, and from fully referenced information from thousands of articles, thus providing the reader with an outstanding up-to-date resource for the diagnosis and treatment of neurocutaneous disorders.
