From reviews of the First Edition:
"While working in the Carnegie Laboratories of Embryology in California, Ronan O'Rahilly and Fabiola Müller published several most interesting and excellent scientific papers, but the consummation of their teamwork is this book. . . . Although the book deals only with human development, it should also be useful for any person interested in comparative embryology. . . ." —Anatomia Histologia Embryologia
"This clear and easily read textbook is perhaps the best introduction to systematic embryology that any student in the biological sciences could wish to read. . . . This book will be welcomed by generations of students of anatomy and biology." —Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine
"Human Embryology & Teratology . . . is an excellent addition to the library of those doing prenatal diagnosis . . . this is a wonderful text that will complement the other usual texts of embryology . . . "—The Fetus
In the years since its first publication, O'Rahilly and Müller's Human Embryology and Teratology has been widely praised as an exceptional reference work on both normal and abnormal human prenatal development. This revised and expanded Second Edition offers more in-depth coverage of the central topics in human embryology and incorporates the latest data from ongoing embryological investigations.
Authored by two of the world's foremost authorities on the human embryo, this new edition provides a comprehensive overview of general and systemic development, referring throughout to the internationally accepted Carnegie system of embryonic staging. Extensively illustrated, the book features nearly 300 figures, including detailed, color-enhanced line drawings that clarify the developmental processes of every major organ and system. Photographs, micrographs, and 3-D reconstructions depict vital aspects of morphology and histology; and some 45 illustrations provide actual case examples of specific congenital anomalies. Numerous tables organize such critical data as the initial appearances of main features in relation to embryonic length, age, and stage.
Material that has been added or expanded in this Second Edition includes:
The preeminent compilation on human embryology and embryonic abnormalities, Human Embryology and Teratology, Second Edition belongs in the library of every physician, student, and research scientist concerned with human anatomical development. Its authoritative, concise, and thoroughly illustrated presentation also makes it an ideal reference for practitioners in all medical and surgical subspecialty fields.
