Genetic Disorders and the Fetus: Diagnosis, Prevention and Treatment, Eighth Edition is the eagerly awaited new edition of the discipline-leading work that has been at the forefront of diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of fetal genetic disorders for over 36 years.

This timely update builds on the foundations of preconception and prenatal genetic counseling and the original pillars of prenatal diagnosis while also providing authoritative coverage of exciting developments in non-invasive genetic testing and rapidly developing molecular techniques. Chapters are once again authored by internationally recognized authorities in the field of prenatal diagnosis.

The editors have brought together an invaluable collection of evidence-based facts bolstered by knowledge and decades of experience in the field.
