provide the essential core knowledge needed in modern clinical practice for the diagnosis and management of patients with possible disorders of the blood. Major advances in the specialty have been reflected in this thoroughly revised
new edition. Essential knowledge is covered with the main differential diagnoses, along with relevant investigations that will help the junior doctor to arrive at a definitive diagnosis. The management of the patient is provided in a way that allows the junior to initiate treatment whilst waiting
for review of the patient by a senior member of staff.

As with the first edition, the new edition of this Handbook will have wide appeal and readership amongst senior medical undergraduates, junior doctors and trainees in haemotology, residents, interns and fellows, family doctors, intensive care staff and specialist nurses.

Haematology: From the Image to the Diagnosis 1st Edition

 Hematology  Comments Off on Haematology: From the Image to the Diagnosis 1st Edition
Jul 142022


Diagnostic haematology requires the assessment of clinical and laboratory data together with a careful morphological assessment of cells in blood, bone marrow and tissue ­fluids. Subsequent investigations including flow cytometry, immunohistochemistry, cytogenetics and molecular studies are guided by the original morphological findings. These targeted investigations help generate a prompt unifying diagnosis. Haematology: From the Image to the Diagnosis presents a series of cases illustrating how skills in morphology can guide the investigative process. In this book, the authors capture a series of images to illustrate key features to recognize when undertaking a morphological review and show how they can be integrated with supplementary information to reach a final diagnosis.

Using a novel format of visual case studies, this text mimics ‘real life’ for the practising diagnostic haematologist – using brief clinical details and initial microscopic morphological triage to formulate a differential diagnosis and a plan for efficient and economical confirmatory investigation to deduce the correct final diagnosis. The carefully selected, high-quality photomicrographs and the clear, succinct descriptions of key features, investigations and results will help haematologists, clinical scientists, haematology trainees and haematopathologists to make accurate diagnoses in their day-to-day work.

Covering a wide range of topics, and including paediatric as well as adult cases, Haematology: From the Image to the Diagnosis is a succinct visual guide which will be welcomed by consultants, trainees and scientists alike.

Leukaemia Diagnosis 5th Edition

 Hematology, Oncology  Comments Off on Leukaemia Diagnosis 5th Edition
Jul 022022

From the bestselling author, Barbara J. Bain, the new edition of this practical reference on the principles of leukaemia diagnosis and classification has been fully updated, and incorporates the recently revised WHO classification.

Leukaemias are a very heterogeneous group of diseases, which differ from each other in aetiology, pathogenesis, prognosis and responsiveness to treatment. Accurate diagnosis and classification are vital for the identification of specific biological entities and underpin scientific advances in this field. The detailed characterization of haematological neoplasms is also essential for the optimal management of individual patients.

In this user-friendly guide, Professor Bain illustrates and explains how these many laboratory techniques are used for the diagnosis and classification of leukaemia and related disorders. Leukaemia Diagnosis, Fifth Edition will be highly valuable to trainee haematologists and laboratory scientists in haematology and related disciplines, and will also prove a useful reference source and teaching aid for those who already have expertise in this field. In addition, cytogeneticists and molecular geneticists will find that this book enhances their understanding of the relationship of their disciplines to the diagnosis, classification and monitoring of leukaemia and related disorders.

Essential reading for every haematologist and haematopathologist, Leukaemia Diagnosis, Fifth Edition features

  • Over 300 high quality full colour digital images of abnormal cells in leukaemia and lymphoma supplemented by histological, cytogenetic and immunophenotyping images
  • Recent information on cytogenetic and molecular genetic abnormalities in leukaemia

Haematology (Fundamentals of Biomedical Science) 2nd Edition

 Hematology  Comments Off on Haematology (Fundamentals of Biomedical Science) 2nd Edition
Jun 252022

Biomedical scientists are the foundation of modern healthcare, from cancer screening to diagnosing HIV, from blood transfusion for surgery to food poisoning and infection control. Without biomedical scientists, the diagnosis of disease, the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment, and
research into the causes and cures of disease would not be possible.

The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series has been written to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today. It draws together essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice to show how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled to the analytical
approaches that lead to diagnosis. Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a Biomedical Scientist may be exposed – from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science.

Haematology provides a broad-ranging overview of the study of blood, the dynamic fluid that interfaces with all organs and tissues to mediate essential transport and regulatory functions.

Written with the needs of the biomedical scientist centre-stage, it provides a firm grounding in the physiology of blood, and the key pathophysiological states that can arise. It demonstrates throughout how an understanding of the physiology underpins the key investigations carried out by a
biomedical scientist to forge a clear link between science and practice. The second edition includes a new chapter on acquired disorders of haemostasis.

Online Resource Centre
The Online Resource Centre to accompany Haematology features:

For registered adopters of the book:
DT Figures from the book, available to download

For students:
DT Answers to case study and self-check questions.

Williams Hematology: The Red Cell and Its Diseases 1st Editio

 Hematology  Comments Off on Williams Hematology: The Red Cell and Its Diseases 1st Editio
Jun 152022

Everything you need to know about red cell disorders, from basic science to clinical application.

When red blood cells do not have enough hemoglobin, oxygen cannot reach all parts of the body—as a result, organs start to malfunction and may lead to a host of issues including deformities, enlarged spleen, heart problems and other diseases. There are myriad red cell disorders, such as iron deficiency anemia, pernicious anemia, aplastic anemia, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, sickle cell, thalassemia and other hemoglobinopathies.

The Red Cells and its Diseases provides clinicians with a practical diagnostic and treatment framework for identifying and successfully managing acute, congenital, and chronic red blood cell disorders. Presented in an accessible template format, the book includes classifications, etiology and pathogenesis, clinical and laboratory features, differential diagnosis, treatment, management, and supportive care.

This comprehensive, yet concise resource covers:

  • Structure and physiology of the red cell
  • Classification of red cell diseases
  • Diseases of red cell production
  • Anemias resulting principally from inherited disorders
  • Anemia as a result of exogenous factors
  • Polyclonal erythrocytosis
  • Red cell transfusion
