Book CoverMedical and Surgical Care for Children with Down's Syndrome : A Guide for parents
Van Dyke et al (Editors)
Woodbine House. 1995. ISBN 0-933149-54-9
order from Amazon

This is a multi-author American publication produced in 1995. It would be a daunting first time book for parents, but is an invaluable source of information for professionals even though a few recommendations, in particular the advisability of cervical spine x-rays to screen for cervical spine instability do not concur with present UK practice. This book is undoubtedly the most comprehensive and up to date text available for the non specialist reader and should be readily accessible to all paediatricians and health visitors caring for children with Down's syndrome.
