A concise, clinically-focused guide to the evaluation and management of infants with congenital malformations

Congenital Malformations is a comprehensive, practical text that highlights key perspectives on the medical management of infants with malformations. With its convenient system-based organization and evidence-based approach, this clinically-focused guide is designed to optimize the utilization of limited diagnostic resources. Easy-to-follow algorithms and tables enable you to rapidly identify and manage the many different malformations that commonly present in clinical practice, such as cleft lip, cardiac septal defects, and skeletal dysplasias.


  • Succinct, high-yield coverage allows for efficient review of the most common malformations
  • Evidence-based orientation provides up-to-date, clinically relevant diagnostic and treatment recommendations that are based on a meticulous review of the scientific literature
  • Consistent templated format delivers easily accessible information on:
  • Epidemiology/Etiology
  • Clinical Presentation
  • Associated Malformations and Syndromes
  • Evaluation
  • Management and Prognosis
  • Genetic counseling
  • Organized by malformation rather than syndrome - for a clear, easy-to-follow diagnostic guide
