Waardenburg Syndrome

  • A unique single-source of information on a little recognized and little understood syndrome
  • While written specifically for professionals in the communication sciences, the lack of a single reference resource on the topic makes this a valuable tool for general practitioners, optometrists and ophthalmologists.

 

This is thought to be the first book dedicated to Waardenburg Syndrome, first discovered by Dutch ophthalmologist Petrus Johannes Waardenburg in 1951. The hereditary syndrome manifests as skin discolorization, a wide bridge of the nose and, frequently, through dual pigmentation of the eyes, combined with deafness, the incidences of which led Waardenburg to his discovery.

Although the syndrome is reported to occur in about 1 per 4000 live births, the author asserts that her 20 year's experience of diagnosing and treating patients leads her to believe the incidence is indeed far higher and that diagnosis goes undetected as health care professionals are generally unaware of the signs of the syndrome.
