London Dysmorphology Database for Windows : Windows Floppy Disks
The Windows version of the "London Dysmorphology Database" (LDDB) contains information on 2,860 non-chromosomal, multiple congenital anomaly syndromes. There are also 25,529 references. The database is simple to use and has many valuable features. You can browse or search for the syndromes, features, and references supplied. Searches can be combined or progressively refined, and searches can be printed or saved. LDDB arose from the need to diagnose and provide genetic counselling for the hundreds of rare multiple congenital malformation syndromes. Work began on the database in 1981 with the intention of ascertaining the majority of reported syndromes in the literature. Major reference works were consulted, as well as journals that might contain a report of multiple congenital anomaly syndromes. Systems requirements: Windows 3.1 or Windows 95. 486PC with 33MHz or full compatible. 8Mb RAM. VGA monitor with 256 colours set at 640 x 480 (SVGA highly recommended). The software takes about 17Mb of disk space and the database takes about 33Mb.
