The neurocutaneous disorders comprise a large group of neurological syndromes that feature skin lesions and often eye lesions, central and peripheral nervous system tumors, brain malformations, mental retardation, psychiatric symptoms, or seizures. Neurocutaneous syndromes have been known for centuries, but recent research into their cellular, biochemical and molecular-genetic basis has pointed to an essential need for a genotypic nosology. In this book, a distinguished team of editors and authors provides an authoritative, illustrated, up-to-the-minute review of the current understanding of phenotype-genotype relationships in these disorders, as well as their recognition, investigation and treatment. It will be essential reading for all neurologists as well as dermatologists, geneticists and pediatricians.

• A uniquely authoritative overview of the clinical features, natural history and genetic and molecular mechanisms of the neurocutaneous syndromes • Highly illustrated throughout • Essential reading for both neurologists and dermatologists

'The reader is most definitely in for a treat … This edition of Neurocutaneous Disorders provides the essential and forward-looking clinical and genetic data which points the way to the future.' Roger N. Rosenberg

'Dr. Roach could not have chosen a better quote for the start of chapter one of this excellent book. It is the first overview text of neurocutaneous disorders since Gomez' 1987 book … All the chapters are well written … This book will now be the reference text for neurocutaneous disorders … I would strongly recommend it as a 'must' for the libraries of all department of adult and paediatric neurology, clinical genetics and dermatology.' Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry
