The third edition of this highly regarded book, authored by three of the foremost authorities in pediatric metabolic medicine, fulfills this need by providing an invaluable insight into the problems associated with metabolic diseases.

The book is divided into sections of related disorders, such as disorders of amino acid metabolism, lipid storage disorders and mitochondrial diseases, with an introductory outline where appropriate summarizing the biochemical features and general management issues.
