Summary
"Myotonic Dystrophy 3e is written for all who may encounter myotonic dystrophy in whatever way. The main part of this book examines the various clinical aspects of myotonic dystrophy in the light of current knowledge. Thus the neuromuscular features and differential diagnosis are covered in detail, as are the paediatric, cardiovascular, and other aspects of the disease. Muscle pathology and molecular biology are also described fully. Much new material is contained within the chapters on genetics, in particular the new research and understanding of the primary molecular defect in this disorder, the concept of unstable DNA, and the existence of trinucleotide repeats. This information is invaluable to both clinicians and researchers working in the field. Finally, clinical management is described so that all clinicians involved with myotonic dystrophy whatever their specialty, can find practical guidance on how to improve their patient's condition."--BOOK JACKET
