From The CriticsReviewer: Wei Cui, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: Each chapter in this book starts with a case history before discussing the morphology, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, and molecular genetics findings of a hematologic neoplasm in detail. The previous edition was published in 2008.
Purpose: The purpose is to incorporate the new molecular genetics findings of hematologic neoplasms, an important objective, especially when molecular genetics information helps guide risk stratification and, therefore, therapeutic strategy.
Audience: "The book is written for hematopathologists and hematologists/oncologists, and it also can be used by pathology residents, hematopathology fellows, hematopathologists, and general pathologists.
Features: Morphologic features, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, and molecular genetics findings for hematologic neoplasms are all covered. Flow cytometry histograms are very useful in delivering the information, and the use of tables to illustrate morphologic features and immunophenotypic findings of hematologic neoplasms is a powerful tool to help readers understand the subject better.
Assessment: This practical book has very good quality pictures, color illustrations, and prints, and the new edition is justified.
