Inherited metabolic diseases : a clinical approach by Stephen G Kahler( )

32 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in English and German and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The explosion of insights in the field of metabolic disease has shed new light on diagnostic as well as treatment options. Is written with a reader-friendly consistent structure. It helps the reader to find the information in an easily accessible and rapid way when needed. Starting with an overview of the major groups of metabolic disorders it includes algorithms with questions and answers as well as numerous graphs, metabolic pathways, and an expanded index. Clinical and diagnostic details with a system and symptom based are given to facilitate an efficient and yet complete diagnostic work-up of individual patients.

Congenital neurotransmitter disorders : a clinical approach( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Congenital neurotransmitter disorders are nowadays recognized as important causes of severe, progressive encephalopathies mostly of early onset. They are ultraorphan diseases and numerous experiences confirm again and again that diagnosis and treatment of patients is often almost regularly delayed for many years, if ever at all. Specific therapeutic approaches which can lead to excellent outcomes, especially if instituted early, are thereby withheld from patients and their families. The diagnosis of these disorders is almost exclusively based on clinical signs and symptoms leading to measureme
Inherited metabolic diseases by Georg F Hoffmann( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on clinical presentations that may be caused by inherited metabolic diseases. Its symptom- and system-based approach will help clinicians with and without detailed knowledge of human biochemistry in all specialties to reach a correct diagnosis and institute the optimal treatment program. The book summarizes the central elements of inherited metabolic diseases and describes clearly how to carry out an efficient yet complete diagnostic work-up, thereby guiding the clinician from the presenting symptoms and signs through to effective initial management. After an introduction to the different disorders, the book explains when to consider an inborn metabolic error and which initial tests to order. Core aspects such as structured communication, guidelines, transition, pregnancy, maternal care and how to respond to various medical emergencies are covered. Therapeutic concepts such as dietary treatment are delineated and practical advice provided on the quite different treatment approaches required for individual diseases. An extensive section structured according to organ systems outlines the correct approach in the context of specific symptoms and signs. The value of each of the potential investigations is explained, with precise advice on the interpretation of results. The inclusion of algorithms, tables, lists, and charts facilitates rapid decision making and information retrieval, and the appendices include a helpful guide to differential diagnosis based on clinical and biochemical phenotypes. This new updated edition of Inherited Metabolic Diseases will be an invaluable aid for the busy clinician and an excellent quick reference for metabolic and genetic specialists

Atlas of inherited metabolic diseases by William L Nyhan( )

In a field where even experts may find that years have elapsed since they last encountered a child with a given disorder, it is essential for the clinician to have a comprehensive source of practical and highly illustrated information covering the whole spectrum of metabolic disease to refer to. The content is divided into sections of related disorders, including disorders of amino acid metabolism, lipid storage disorders, and mitochondrial diseases for ease of reference, with an introductory outline where appropriate summarizing the biochemical features and general management issues. Within the sections, each chapter deals with an individual disease, opening with a useful summary of major phenotypic expression including clear and helpful biochemical pathways, identifying for the reader exactly where the defect occurs. Throughout the book, plentiful photographs, often showing extremely rare disorders, are an invaluable aid to diagnosis. Key Features Fully updated to incorporate all new developments in the field Brand new chapters cover methylmalonic aciduria of ACSF3 deficiency, branched chain keto acid dehydrogenase deficiency, serine deficiencies, purine nucleoside phosphorylase deficiency, antiquitin deficiency, and others Excellent and detailed clinical descriptions, with numerous valuable hints and suggestions for management Helpful explanatory algorithms and decision trees, and high-quality illustrative material including biochemical pathways and an unrivaled photographic collection, which enhance clinical applicability The fourth edition of this highly regarded book, authored by two of the foremost authorities in pediatric metabolic medicine, continues to provide incomparable insight into the problems associated with metabolic diseases and remains invaluable to pediatricians, geneticists, and general clinicians worldwide
Physician's guide to the treatment and follow-up of metabolic diseases by N Blau( )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The greatest dif?culty in life is to make knowledge effective, to convert it into practical wisdom. Sir William Osler. The inborn errors of metabolism, as a group of metabolic diseases, are re- tively rare and are sometimes called "orphan diseases." As a group, they account for about 1 in 2,500 births (Applegarth et al. 2000) and, as a cumulative group reaching 20 years of age, their prevalence is about 40 cases per 100,000 popu- tion. In terms of patient days of continuous supervision and care, hundreds of thousands of such days are involved per generation of these patients. Although experience with these diseases as a class may be small and people expert in their management may be relatively few, in the years to come many caregivers will become involved. This book offers help to them. Until the mid-twentieth century, hereditary metabolic and other genetic diseases were considered to be purely "genetic" problems. Destiny would take its course, treatment did not exist, and genetic counseling about recurrence risks was virtually all that could be offered. Phenylketonuria (PKU) was then shown to be a treatable genetic disease in which early diagnosis and effective treatment prevented the disease (mental retardation) in PKU. Other genetic diseases for which an environmental experience was an essential component of cause (e. g., exposure to a dietary component or a drug) were then seen to yield to treatment

Vademecum metabolicum : manual of metabolic paediatrics by Johannes Zschocke( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inborn errors of metabolism represent a special challenge in general and paediatric practice. The development and prognosis of the affected child may depend on rapid and effective treatment, but the large number of genetic disorders in various biochemical pathways makes it difficult to be familiar with diagnostic strategies and specific therapies. With this in mind, the Vademecum Metabolicum aims to provide practical guidance to the clinician. The second edition has been extensively updated and expanded. The first section summarises the differential diagnosis and management strategies for a large number of clinical situations, and describes indications and requirements for all relevant metabolic investigations. The second section explains the metabolic pathways in detail. Clinical characteristics, diagnostic approaches and the basis of therapy are discussed for more than 300 individual disorders.
