The textbook of choice for trainees and practitioners in haematology

Over five editions Postgraduate Haematology has built a reputation as an extremely practical, user-friendly, reliable source of information for examination preparation and clinical practice. Completely revised to reflect the latest research in the field, this edition continues to provide trainees with up-to-date knowledge on the pathogenesis, clinical and laboratory features, and management of blood disorders. It covers the significant advances which have occurred in the application of cytogenetics and molecular genetics in the diagnosis, classification and understanding of haematological disorders.

Coupled with the expertise of 34 new contributors from across Europe, the editors have been joined by Professor Anthony Green, from the University of Cambridge, and they have reorganised the book into 52 accessible chapters.

Postgraduate Haematology is richly illustrated throughout with over 450 colour illustrations including line drawings, photomicrographs of blood cells and tissues, and algorithms to help aid treatment decision making. It is an indispensable resource for trainees and an essential read for all specialists who are interested in updating their knowledge.
