CONCLUSIONS: Major advances have been made in all areas. The clinical picture has been refined and developmental manifestations have been delineated. Patterns of comorbidity have been detailed. Various etiological factors, particularly in the biological area, have been investigated. Multimodal management has been promulgated as the treatment of choice.
