Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Valerie L. Ng, PhD MD(Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital)
Description: This is a comprehensive book about everything you could ever want to know about immune hemolytic anemias.
Purpose: The original purpose of this book was to span the gap between practice in clinical hematology and advanced esoteric immunohematology testing in laboratory medicine and integrate the knowledge to provide optimal care to patients with immune hemolytic anemias. This second edition appears 13 years after publication of the first edition, and is much needed because of medical advances in transplantation (stem cell or solid organ) and therapies.
Audience: This book would be useful to hematologists, pathologists or clinical laboratory scientists — including the entire spectrum ranging from those in training to those experienced and in practice.
Features: This is the authoritative text on immune hemolytic anemias. The book starts with an introductory historical chapter, followed by 13 chapters that delve in great depth into specific topics related to immune hemolysis. The book successfully integrates key esoteric laboratory tests and results into diagnosis and treatment of various immune-mediated hemolysis. Each topic and chapter is extensively referenced.
Assessment: Wow! This is the book to have available for any question related to immune-mediated hemolysis. Get it!
