Vademecum Metabolicum

Publisher: Schattauer Verlag
ISBN: 3794523857
Release Date: 2004

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. Foreword by James V. Leonard, London

Inherited Metabolic Diseases

Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783662494103
Release Date: 2016-09-20
Genre: Medical

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.
