This second edition compendium of 250 case studies (adding more than 170 pages over the first edition) is the result of a unique collaboration of 227 leading hematologists, hematopathologists, and oncologists. It will serve as both a case-based guide to the diagnosis and management of patients suffering from hematologic conditions and a valuable teaching tool.
The editors have compiled an invaluable collection of cases covering common and rare entities-from anemias through lymphoma to plasma cell, platelet and coagulation disorders. Cases are presented in an easy-to-follow format, grouped by related conditions. The final two sections present 40 self-study challenge cases that provide basic history presentation information and initial workup data with images. The data is followed by questions about differential diagnosis, additional workup, most likely diagnosis, course of management and salient features of the case. Corresponding answers/discussions are provided by the authors of each case.
A broad range of topics in both hematology and coagulation are covered in this ASCP CaseSet, including:
• Myeloproliferative Disorders
• Myelodysplastic Syndromes
• Lymphoproliferative Disorders
• Lymphomas and Their Mimics
• Plasma Cell Disorders
