Hematologic malignancies were the first human cancers to be studied in depth at the molecular level, and recent years have seen important advances in treatment. This comprehensive reference book covers the full range of hematologic malignancies, including all subtypes of leukemias, lymphomas, and plasma cell dyscrasias. Authored by internationally known experts, each chapter emphasizes diagnostic work-up, staging, and therapeutic approaches. Up-to-date hematopathology, treatment, and outcomes data are presented in a way which is directly applicable to patient care. Highly illustrated with color images, graphs, flowcharts and treatment algorithms, the book is perfect for quick clinical reference as well as providing detailed reference lists for further study. With its authoritative and practical focus and visually stimulating presentation, this is a key text for hematology and oncology fellows, physicians, oncology nurses, physician assistants and other healthcare workers in the field of oncology.
