Gene Reviews

Gene Review is an international publication which is seen as a resource for clinicians and medical professionals as it provides clinical data and information for inherited conditions in a standardised journal-style format, covering diagnosis and management. Each chapter in the Gene Review is written by one or more experts on the specific condition or disease and goes through a rigorous editing process before being published online.

The first Gene Review for Alstrom Syndrome was published in 2003, but has been updated in 2019.

The Gene Reviews can be found on the U.S National Library of Medicine:
