  • A highly illustrated guide and reference for haematologists, oncologists and clinical scientists
  • Guiding investigation, differential diagnosis, prognosis and treatment options
  • Evidence-based Handbook - placing the wisdom of leading clinicians in the service of best practice in patient care

Meeting the needs of haematologists, haematopathologists, oncologists and clinical scientists for an up-to-date reference, this atlas provides a visual presentation of lymphoproliferative disorders, lymphoid leukaemias and plasma cell neoplasms. Each malignancy is surveyed based on molecular and cellular changes, including histochemistry, cytochemistry and relevant radiographs. Pertinent clinical information relating to clinical presentation, differential diagnosis and prognostic indicators are concisely outlined, using numerous graphics and citing key references in the field.
