With over 20 real patient cases and outcomes, this latest title from the Clinical Cases Uncovered series is designed to help students and junior doctors learn how to recognise and understand significant diseases in haematology. Each case covers the history taking, examination, investigations and management of a particular disease, with question and answer sections to tie in the underlying basic and clinical science and help build further knowledge and understanding. At the end of each case there is a review to consolidate learning with a self-assessment section containing MCQs, EMQs and SAQs. Including colour blood films, haematology slides and patient photos throughout to reinforce learning, understanding and investigative skills, Haematology: Clinical Cases Uncovered helps prepare for life on the wards.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I have purchased three of your books: Paediatics, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, and Haematology. I have found the story-telling style and the level of detail contained in the cases to be balanced nicely so that it retains a realism that other case books lack and that reader remains engaged in the outcome of the investigations and the end-point of the case. All in all, these series make for interesting and entertaining reads which ultimately renders them an excellent learning tool.” - Medical Student,Trinity College Dublin

"This book is an example of how complex information can be presented attractively." - Journal of Tropical Pediatrics, 2009

"A useful book for the purpose of applying theory to practice in haematology diagnosis and problem solving and a good aid to revision." - The Royal College of Pathologists, July 2009
