In recent years a significant improvement in the understanding of genetics and developmental syndromes has been seen. In this context, the study of endocrinological aspects in patients with genetic syndromes is acquiring increasing significance.This book documents a workshop held in Rome in April 2008 and presents recent advances in the study of developmental syndromes and epigenetics. Contributions by international experts focus on the genetic aspects of Beckwith-Wiedemann, Silver-Russel, Prader-Willi and Angelman syndromes and many more.Providing an eclectic update on the endocrine involvement in developmental syndromes, this book will be of interest to clinicians and researchers in endocrinology, pediatrics and genetics.
