Book Description

This handy reference demonstrates how to use blood, plasma, serum, instrumentation, bone marrow, lymph nodes, and splenic tissue to establish diagnosis, emphasizing practical information to aid in the operation of an efficient hematology laboratory and highlighting up-to-date investigative procedures.
Supplies case studies to allow for self-testing in hematopathology and coagulation!
Gathering contributions from nearly 40 experts in the field and including more than 1450 references, tables, drawings, micrographs, and photographs, the Handbook of Hematologic Pathology

  • highlights the need for peripheral blood smear (PBS) review to supplement the quantitative analysis of automated instruments
  • focuses on the importance of clinical correlation in bone marrow evaluation and interpretation
  • addresses leukemia and lymphoma
  • examines clonal stem cell disorders characterized by self-perpetuating and differentiating proliferation
  • considers common causes of a hypercoagulable state associated with intrinsic circulating plasma factors
  • details inherited and acquired reactive leukocyte disorders
  • describes assessing cell lineage and stage of differentiation with monoclonal antibodies
  • summarizes the results of immunologic and molecular studies of Hodgkin's disease
  • explores the mechanisms of action, dosage, therapeutic monitoring, and complications associated with anticoagulants
  • discusses mechanisms of surgical bleeding and laboratory assessment
  • differentiates between acquired and congenital bleeding disorders and emphasizes laboratory test selection for diagnosis and successful therapy
  • clarifies the complexity of coagulation instrumentation and offers insight into the recognition of procedural or instrument errors and interfering medications
  • outlines blood and blood component therapy options used in the management of bleeding disorders
  • and more!
    Presenting brief illustrative examples that elucidate specific clinical problems, the Handbook of Hematologic Pathology is an exceptional reference for clinical and experimental hematologists; pathologists; hematopathologists; medical, surgical, radiation, and research oncologists; immunologists; molecular and cell biologists; and medical school and graduate students in these disciplines.

    …well written and organized....a valuable source of practical information applicable to patient care.
    "- Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

    ...it was a pleasure to read this text because [the] 'first-hand' experience [of the authors] can be felt throughout the book.
    ...strongly recommend[ed] to residents and fellow in hematopathology.
    - Modern Pathology, 2000

    The authors provide up-to-date knowledge and information on how to use blood, plasma, serum, bone marrow, lymph nodes, splenic tissues, and instrumentation to establish diagnoses....the authors provide useful insights into the mechanisms underlying the disorders. In addition, the presentation of study cases at the end of each chapter, which include questions for self-assessment, is a very attractive feature of this book.
    ...Written in a simple and easy-to-read style, this book will capture the interests of a wide audience engaged in or dependent on laboratory hematology....a valuable addition to a personal library.
