The new edition of this comprehensive text presents a complete guide to hematology, beginning with normal hematopoiesis and covering diseases of erythroid, myeloid, lymphoid and megakaryocytic origin. It also addresses complementary testing areas such as flow cytometry, cytogenetics and molecular diagnostics. An excellent chapter on automated cell counting compares and contrasts major instruments. It features case studies relevant to the topic in each chapter, follow-up questions at the end, useful chapter summaries, and much more. All-new information on molecular diagnostics and a completely revised section on hemostasis and thrombosis by George Fritsma bring the text up-to-date with current content. Inside, readers will find all the essential content needed in a superb, quick-reference laboratory resource, as well as the pedagogy and accessible reading level that make it an ideal teaching textbook!
