The world's leading reference in hematopathology returns with this completely updated second edition. Authored by international experts in the field, it covers a broad range of hematologic disorders -- both benign and malignant -- with information on the pathogenesis, clinical and pathologic diagnosis, and treatment for each. Comprehensive in scope, it's a must-have resource for both residents and practicing pathologists alike.

Key Features

  • Authored by the chief architects of the WHO classification in neoplasms of hematopoietic and lymphoid tissue.
  • Covers the newest diagnostic techniques, including molecular, immunohistochemical, and genetic studies.

About the Authors

Elaine Jaffe

Dr. Elaine Jaffe is regarded by her peers as one of the most pre-eminent hematopathologists of her generation. She is most widely known for her work regarding the pathophysiology and prognosis of malignant lymphomas, as well as her unparalleled work to understand how they respond to treatment. Dr. Jaffe led the effort to develop the World Health Organization classification of tumors of the hematopoietic and lymphoid tissues published in 2001, a classification that rapidly became the international standard.
