The ciliopathies are a group of rare diseases that often affect multiple systems within the body, and are caused by defects in the function or structure of cilia. When cilia go wrong, there are profound consequences; these are discussed in detail for the first time in Ciliopathies: a referencefor clinicians.The book provides a clinical overview and reference to this newly emergent group of disorders ranging from Alstrom syndrome to putative ciliopathic disorders.
