This review is a step by step guide to hematopathology for students preparing for rotation and examinations. Beginning with an introduction to haematopoiesis and haematology testing, the following chapters examine different types of condition such as red blood cell, platelet and nonneoplastic white blood cell disorders, as well as related diseases including leukaemia, lymphoma and myelodysplastic syndromes. Separate chapters are dedicated to flow cytometry and molecular pathology.
Each chapter presents a practical, clinically oriented approach to understanding the basis of the tests, the potential pitfalls (clinical, technical and biological) in their interpretation and resulting prognosis and treatment.
Written by US-based Professor D A Zhang, this comprehensive review features more than 325 colour images and illustrations. A Question and Answer section is included to assist students with learning.
