Genetics and its impact on adolescent medicine (pp. 153-164) $45.00
Authors:  Helga V Toriello, Ryan Rodarmer, and Trudy McKanna
Our knowledge of genetic medicine has grown exponentially in the past decade, and so too has the availability and scope of genetic testing. Along with this explosion in information and its translation into healthcare management, there have emerged numerous practical, ethical and legal issues. The scope of this chapter is not to delve in depth into each of these issues, but to recognize the changing scope of genetics and its impact on adolescent medicine, focusing on examples related to sudden cardiac death (SCD) and behavioral predispositions. A review of the modes of inheritance is important in understanding how genetic disease may manifest in a family, and provide different risks to the adolescent patient considering testing or treatment for a genetic condition.
