From the reviews:"This book reviews chronic disorders, assorted chromosomal abnormalities, and general issues related to chronic disorders in children. ... It is more likely to appeal to parents whose children have these disorders and to those more involved in the ancillary services needed by these patients. ... the brevity and concise nature of this book's presentation offer a good introduction to the topics for those looking for the basics."
