This book will be the most complete and authoritative benchside reference text on the pathologic interpretation and diagnosis of blood and bone marrow disease. The book will cover all of the pathologic conditions that are likely to be encountered in daily practice. The text incorporate the latest knowledge on the molecular basis of inherited red cell and coagulation disorders. The organizational structure of each chapter will follow a consistent format: incidence/epidemiology, pathogenesis, brief clinical presentation, histologic and cytologic appearance, testing techniques, differential diagnosis and a brief section on clinical behavior and outcome. Detailed descriptions of the pathologic features of blood and bone marrow in combination with over 1,000 high quality illustrations provide the reader with a single, comprehensive resource to assist in accurate diagnosis. Histologic and cytologic appearances are correlated throughout to provide the clinician with a complete and integrated approach to diagnostic interpretation and reporting. An emphasis on differential diagnosis and diagnostic pitfalls provides the clinician with a quick, practical solution to reporting difficult and problematic specimens. Focus on the practical techniques of diagnostic laboratory testing reflects the realities of the pathologist's everyday work environment. Consistent and logical organizational structure will enable the clinician to locate essential information quickly and easily.

"Part of the highly regarded Diagnostic Pathology series, Diagnostic Pathology: Blood and Bone Marrow, second edition includes today's most recent knowledge on the latest finds in this subspecialty. New chapters focus on current molecular insights into the pathogenesis of familial disorders and neoplasms, ensuring pathologists, hematopathologists, hematologists, and oncologists alike can deliver the most up-to-date diagnoses possible. Concise, bulleted text coupled with extensive illustrations makes this succinct yet comprehensive reference ideal for clinical use."--Provided by publisher.
This book focuses on hematopoietic and lymphoid neoplasms that initially present as peripheral blood abnormalities, with either cytopenias or elevated peripheral blood counts, as well as non-neoplastic conditions that may raise concern for a hematologic malignancy. The scope of the book includes myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN), mixed myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative neoplasms (MDS/MPN), as well as lymphomas and lymphoid leukemias that typically present initially with peripheral blood abnormalities. Within each category, a comprehensive list of differential diagnoses is discussed. For each disease entity, the reader is updated with new molecular genetic data, biomarkers, and recent applications of immunophenotyping, and how to incorporate the new information in disease diagnosis and classifications is illustrated, including the use of diagnostic algorithms where appropriate. The book employs the revised WHO Classification of Hematopoietic Neoplasms for all disease entities. Diagnosis of Blood and Bone Marrow Disorders will serve as a very useful resource for pathologists, pathologists in training, hematologists and medical technologists who are involved in the clinical work-up of patients with bone marrow and blood neoplasms. It will provide a practical and concise yet comprehensive review.
Drs Richard Champlin, Jerome Ritz, Willem Fibbe, Per Ljungman, and Malcom K. Brenner join Kerry Atkinson as editors of this definitive reference on the clinical practice and underlying science of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. This third edition text is significantly revised and updated with 124 chapters balancing scientific explanations with practical information on patient care for all aspects of autologous, syngeneic, and allogeneic transplantation. This edition includes 18 new chapters on significant topics such as plasticity of stem cells, embryonic stem cells, and nonmyeloablative conditioning regimens. Thoroughly referenced through 2003, the chapters are divided into 15 sections, including biological background and practical procedures, clinical results, transplant-related and organ-specific complications, laboratory aspects, and developing areas, with a final 'breaking news' chapter from this rapidly evolving field. Over 170 internationally-recognized experts contributed to this authoritative and practical text that is an essential resource for hematologists, oncologists, and transplant specialists.
