artifact description
This is the first in a series of newsletters designed to inform the Virginia medical community of recent advances in the area of genetics and metabolism and to provide information regarding a variety of services that are available at the Medical College of Virginia. The number, complexity and expense of tests that are now required in order to make precise diagnoses in many of the newly described genetic and metabolic disorders make it impossible for most clinical pathology laboratories to provide these services.
