About the Authors
  • Diagnostic Pediatric Hematopathology is unique in providing an accurate and up-to-date guide to the diagnosis of benign and malignant hematologic disorders of childhood. The text discusses the development of the hematopoietic and lymphoid systems – and how this affects normal and abnormal findings in children at various ages. Also examined are the morphologic, immunophenotypic, cytogenetic, and molecular genetic characteristics of most pediatric-specific hematologic diseases. This is an excellent reference that ensures accurate diagnoses when evaluating peripheral blood, bone marrow, and lymph nodes of children. The text is written by a team of experienced pediatric hematopathologists and clinical scientists drawn from major academic children's hospitals in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada. It will be a valuable tool in the every day practice of pathologists, pediatric pathologists, and hematopathologists, and a ready educational resource for fellows, pathology residents, medical students, clinical scientists in the field, and pediatric hematologists/oncologists.

    • Focuses on pediatric-specific non-neoplastic and neoplastic diseases and explores the differences between children of various ages and adults
    • Written by practising pediatric hematopathologists and clinical scientists, it provides unique expertise from real experts in the field
    • Well illustrated and easy to use; a quick reference guide for reviewing peripheral blood, bone marrow, and lymph nodes from children

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… a very manageable total number of pages … I found it not to be a weighty tome thus lending itself to be taken from the [shelf] and frequently read … this volume … succeeds where many have previously failed in that it provides a true authoritative diagnostic guide to benign and malignant childhood blood disorders … remarkably clear layout … copiously illustrated …' Owen P. Smith, Chair of Haematology, Trinity College Dublin
