Taking a unique multi-disciplinary approach, the book covers conventional histopathology and cytopathology, as well as all important complementary diagnostic tests, such as immunophenotyping (immunohistochemical stains and flow cytometry), karyotyping, FISH and DNA/molecular studies. It offers concise textual and extensive visual coverage of both neoplastic and non-neoplastic hematology disorders, with the neoplastic hematology sections presented according to the most recent WHO classifications. There is also an introduction to the normal structures of hematopoietic tissues and the various multidisciplinary techniques.
The atlas contains more than 900 high-quality color images that mirror the findings that fellows and clinicians encounter in practice. It provides information in a quick, simple and user-friendly manner, attracting those who are in training or are not considered experts in the field. Residents, fellows, practicing clinicians, and researchers in pathology, hematology, hematology/oncology, as well as graduate students in pathology and other clinicians workings in clinical hematology laboratories will all find it useful.
Companion web site features over 900 images from the book!

He is a hematopathologist and an internationally known expert in pathology of bone marrow disorders. He is currently the Head of Hematopathology and the Director of Hematopathology Fellowship program at David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA.
Enables both the haematologist and laboratory scientist to identify blood cell features, from the most common to the more obscure
Featuring a new structure and including new chapters, the third edition updates all content and presents considerable expansion on many topics, including:
Metaphase cytogenetic and FISH
Flow cytometry (overview and detailed analysis of specific tumors)
Acute myeloid leukemia and new classification schemes
MDS, AML, and B- and T-cell lymphoproliferations
Abnormal patterns in the lymph node and bone marrow with detail differential diagnosis based on histologic features and cellular composition
Detailed differential diagnosis based on the expression of broad list of antigenic markers (flow cytometry and immunohistochemistry)
Diagnosis of MDS and myeloproliferative neoplasm and their differential diagnosis based on the morphologic, flow cytometric, and chromosomal features
The book also provides expanded differential diagnosis of the most common as well as most difficult and rare entities, including morphologic, immunophenotypic, and karyotypic/molecular features. This edition includes updated algorithms for most common diagnoses as well as several new algorithms. The majority of figures have been revised and are in full color.
