Main Description
Presenting the New Edition of the classic reference on pediatric hematology and oncology. Comprehensively revised and updated, it continues to integrate lucid reviews of the pathophysiology of disease with detailed clinical guidance on its diagnosis and management. Drs. Nathan and Orkin - joined by two new co-editors and an outstanding team of authors - worked tirelessly to ensure that all the latest scientific advances appear in the 6th Edition. Nearly 50% of the chapters have been rewritten for the 6th Edition; the remaining chapters have been thoroughly revised and updated. Two new co-editors, Dr. Thomas Look and Dr. David Ginsburg, who contribute their expertise to the neoplastic diseases and coagulation sections. Important new coverage of transfusion medicine, stem cell transplantation protocols, the hematologic manifestations of pediatric AIDS/HIV, and more. The recently codified WHO classification for all lymphomas and leukemias.
