A well written book with copious photos and illustration, this text is essential for understanding the development of the facial structure. 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 mechanisms 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, dentists and anatomists.
