Book Review : Catalogue of Unbalanced Chromosome Aberrations in Man, 2nd edition


Liebelt, Jan (2002). Book Review : Catalogue of Unbalanced Chromosome Aberrations in Man, 2nd edition. Chromosome Research, 10(10):87-88.

Abstract

There have been considerable advances in the field of clinical cytogenetics in the nearly two decades since the first edition of Albert Schinzel's Catalogue of Unbalanced Chromosome Aberrations in Man was published.

These advances have been related primarily to increasing detection and characterisation of aberrations by virtue of new and improved technology and have been extensively documented. In contrast, apart from case reports and occasional review articles, an updated text compilation of the clinical data arising from these advances has been lacking.

The revised and expanded second edition of Schinzel's catalogue rectifies this void, with a stated aim of helping clinicians and cytogeneticists who deal with rare chromosome aberrations to obtain a rapid and concise orientation to reported aberrations and to provide references for further detailed literature studies: an aim it would appear to fulfil admirably.
