Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Essential Haematology is established as the most authoritative introduction to the subject for bioscience and medical students, junior doctors, laboratory scientists and nurses. Beautifully presented, it introduces the formation and function of blood cells and diseases that arise from dysfunction and disruption of these processes. Basic science, diagnostic tests and clinical features and management are all easily explained.

The 5th edition has been reorganized to increase the focus on discrete disorders to show the increased understanding of the causation of blood disorders and improved diagnostic techniques and clinical management. A new standardized approach to describing disease and management has also been introduced. The authors' engaging style and inviting presentation continue to make Essential Haematology the perfect learning and reference text.
