Genetic disorders have a major effect on public health, as shown by large epidemiologic studies. The current data indicate that genetic factors contribute to almost two thirds of the conditions requiring admission to a children's hospital. Early identification of the genetic nature of a given condition may provide resources for better care to these individuals. Therefore it is crucial to establish a systematic approach to a dysmorphic, or malformed child. This article presents such a general approach.
