About the Authors
  • Myeloma is the second-most common hematologic cancer, accounting for approximately 1 percent of all cancers and 2 percent of all deaths from cancer. In recent years there have been major and significant advances in the diagnosis, imaging, molecular pathogenesis, and therapy of myeloma. This book describes these advances in a single, practical volume, placing them in the context of daily clinical practice. Different myeloma subtypes are discussed in individual chapters, integrating etiology, pathogenesis, molecular pathology, histology, and therapy in a single place for each condition. The book begins by discussing epidemiology, imaging techniques, pathogenesis, and other general considerations. Conditions covered in detail include multiple myeloma, POEMS syndrome, Castleman's syndrome, Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia, amyloidosis and MGUS. Featuring color illustrations, and written and edited by leading authorities in the field, Myeloma provides readers with the information they need to diagnose and manage these complex disorders.

    • Diagnosis, treatment and management of a condition are discussed in a single chapter, giving readers all of the relevant information in one place
    • Each chapter is written by a leading expert in the field and a wealth of clinical experience is shared with the reader
    • Color illustrations accompany the text to aid understanding
