Recent advances in genetics, molecular biology, diagnostic imaging and surgical techniques require a substantial understanding of prenatal development morphogenesis. The clinical significance of the normal mechaniisms of embyogenesis, devlopmental failures and consequent craniofacial anomalies is of increasing concern to plastic and orofacial surgeons, otolarygologists, orthodontists, neonatal pediatricians and speech pathologists. Clinicians dealing with malformations needing comprehension of the exponential expansion of information on molecular genomics, dysgenesis, teratology and the etiology of the syndromes and anomalies are served by this book's succinct contents. While providing clinicians with a basic background for treating craniofacial anomalies, this text will also appeal to eratologists, embryologists and anatomists.
