Arab Genetic Disorders: A Layman's Guide


Add your own review!

Overview

Certain disorders tend to occur in some ethnic groups more than others. In 2001, McFarland published the author's Jewish Genetic Disorders ( superb guide...outstanding writing and well-organized text...current and comprehensive...exceptional - Library Journal). This new work covers genetic disorders that have been noted to occur with relatively high frequency in Arab populations or that are unique to them. It begins with a discussion of the basic facts about genetics and genetic diseases, and who the Arab people are and why certain genetic disorders are more common in their population. The genetic disorders are then categorized as follows: blood, cardiovascular, central nervous system, connective tissue, endocrine system, metabolic, neuromuscular, respiratory, sensory, skeletal, and skin. For each category, the disorders are examined in terms of symptoms, frequency, cause, the occasional Faustian Bargain, diagnosis, transmission, treatment, and prevention. References for more information are also provided. The book concludes with information on genetic counseling for Arab-Americans.
