Editorial Reviews

"Who should buy this book? Certainly all those working in the field whatever their speciality. Given the frequency of this group of conditions many paediatric neurologists and dermatologists will also want their own copy...a 'must' for the liberaries of all departments of adult and paediatric neurology, clinical genetics, and dermatology."
