Summary note:
"This book presents an overview of lysosomal storage disorders, and provides the reader with an understanding of clinical features, associated complications, and diagnostic and management approaches. It also describes historical developments in the field and current thinking relating to pathophysiology and prospective therapeutic strategies." "The book is written by an expert in the field who has been engaged in both basic and clinical research, in addition to having extensive practical experience in patient care. It is written from the perspective of someone who entered the field just as treatment was being introduced, and who has been engaged in the seminal clinical trials and the development of therapeutic guidelines. It offers a broad perspective and should appeal to both novices and experts in the field who seek a single resource that provides a comprehensive picture of relevant topics on this subject."--BOOK JACKET.
