To address the exponential growth in the fields of pediatric hematology and oncology, this classic reference has been separated into two distinct volumes. With this volume, devoted strictly to pediatric hematology, and another to pediatric oncology, you’ll keep you on the cutting-edge of these two specialties. The completely revised 7th edition of Nathan and Oski’s Hematology of Infancy and Childhood is now in full color, and provides you with the most comprehensive, authoritative, up-to-date information for diagnosing and treating children with hematologic disorders. It brings together the pathophysiology of disease with detailed clinical guidance on diagnosis and management for the full range of blood diseases that you encounter in everyday practice. Written by the leading names in pediatric hematology, this resource is an essential tool for anyone involved in caring for children with hematologic disorders. And, as an Expert Consult title, this thoroughly updated 7th edition comes with access to the complete contents online, fully searchable.
- Balances summaries of relevant pathophysiology with clear, practical clinical guidance to help you thoroughly understand the underlying science of diseases.

"This is an excellent text of non-malignant paediatric haematology, carrying on the well established tradition of previous editions... The book is underpinned by inclusion of up-to-date information about the pathogenesis of haematological diseases, which is especially important given the huge contribution of molecular geneticists to the understanding of paediatric haematology, and vice versa."
