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

…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.
