Abstract:

"Clearly written and well-structured descriptions include just the information that's needed, while nearly 600 illustrations help provide a clinically oriented guide to human development, utilizing a week-by-week and stage-by-stage approach to describe fetal organ and system development. Review questions and answers at the end of each chapter allow for effective exam preparation.Covers the latest advances in embryology, including normal and abnormal embryogenesis, causes of birth defects, and the role of genes in human development.Details how discoveries in molecular biology have affected clinical practice, including the development of sophisticated new techniques such as recumbent DNA technology and stem cell manipulation.Clinical case presentations, highlighted in special boxes, demonstrate how embryology concepts relate to clinical practice and are ideal for preparing for the USMLE Step 1.Three-dimensional animations — 2 new to this edition — help visual learners understand the subjects as discussed in the book as a whole. New and thoroughly revised assessment questions by Mark Torchia.Presents an authoritative description of human embryology through all stages of development.Rich illustrations correspond to the text to enhance comprehension." -- from publisher
