Written by practising physicians specializing in pediatric hematology, neonatology, immunology, pediatric infectious disease and transfusion medicine, this is a practical guide to the pathogenesis, recognition and management of hematologic problems in the neonate. The focus is on clinical issues encountered by pediatric specialists, and there are chapters devoted to disorders of leukocytes, platelets, procoagulant and anticoagulant proteins, and disorders of red blood cells. Neonatal transfusion, malignant disorders in the newborn, neonatal hemoglobinopathy screening, harvesting and storage of umbilical cord stem cells are also covered, and practical approaches to diagnosis and treatment given.

"This is a valuable addition to the libraries of physicians who will find themselves caring for sick newborns. Dr. J. Lawrence Naiman...penned the foreword to this book and commented that each chapter's "author(s) was carefully chosen for his or her expert knowledge and experience in their field." These physicians have combined to produce a work which replaces many older neonatal hematologic texts. This "how to" textbook will hopefully be the first of future editions."--Doody's Review Service®

This is a first-rate review of some of the probems in neonatal hematology.... A large number of well-known hematologists have contributed to this book....well illustrated with black and white photographs, charts and schematic diagrams."
