This book presents an interesting departure from embryology per se. With each organ or system the normal embryology is briefly reviewed before presenting congenital malformations. Numerous simple black-and-white illustrations serve to correlate the normal with abnormal developmental anomalies. Included are chapters on the nose, mouth and face, pharynx and neck, intestinal tract, liver and pancreas, urinary and reproductive systems, as well as four chapters on the heart and aortic arches. These uncommon anomalies are encountered by house officers and practicing physicians. This book should serve as an excellent, quick and informative review.
