This second edition of Medical Genetics for the MRCOG and Beyond has been comprehensively updated to reflect current clinical practice and developments since publication of the original edition. It dispels the misconception that genetics is a difficult subject to understand by placing the science of genetics within the context of obstetric and gynaecological practice. The first section covers basic principles, while the second outlines the more common situations where obstetrics and gynaecology interact with medical genetics. The third section consists of real-life clinical case scenarios which have been selected to represent typical problems and to highlight areas which, if mismanaged, could lead to medico-legal consequences. This is a perfect introduction to any obstetrician or gynaecologist who needs an accessible and concise introduction to modern genetics, and the impact it has on their practice.
