"This is a valuable addition to the libraries of physicians who will find themselves caring for sick newborns. Dr. J. Lawrence Naiman...penned the foreword to this book and commented that each chapter's "author(s) was carefully chosen for his or her expert knowledge and experience in their field." These physicians have combined to produce a work which replaces many older neonatal hematologic texts. This "how to" textbook will hopefully be the first of future editions."--Doody's Review Service®

This is a first-rate review of some of the probems in neonatal hematology.... A large number of well-known hematologists have contributed to this book....well illustrated with black and white photographs, charts and schematic diagrams."
Julian L Ambrus, MD. PhD. FACP; Clara M. Ambrus, MD, PhD, FACP, The Journal of Medicine
