This is a comprehensive sourcebook of reference data for health professionals involved in evaluating people with abnormal features or syndromes. It includes many graphs, tables, and charts needed by clinicians to define normal patterns of growth and provides standards of comparison for possible congenital abnormalities. Numerous "how-to" illustrations give the step-by-step guidance needed to ensure that standardized measurements are properly taken for accurate recordkeeping. Designed for ease of use, the pocket-sized book has a durable plastic cover, making it ideal for use in the ward or clinic.

`... attractive little volume

... a sound, accessible and readable guide to the measurement of a range of variables. The book is very well illustrated by clear line diagrams. A very useful, practical handbook.' Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology `The chunky format is easy to handle and the layout and typography are clear making the book easy to read and surprisingly compulsive to dip into! It is good value for money.' Genetical Research `small and beautifully produced ... can easily be consulted ... it is good to have everything together, and I feel I should use this book many times ... Indeed, I would think that anyone who sees children with dysmorphic syndromes should acquire a copy. ' M. Baraitser, Child Care, Health and Development, Vol.16, No.4, July/Aug '90 `This book provides an extraordinary collection of the available information on normal physical measurements. The book is well set out and easy to use ... a practical reference book which should be available in all paediatric and genetic departments ... invaluable. ' A. Bankier, Journal of Paediatric Child Health (1990) 26
