OverviewHematology is often considered a challenging subject by students and junior medical staff alike. Using key scientific and clinical principles, this succinct guide provides a summary of modern day-to-day clinical practice in paediatric hematology. Focusing on the facts that underpin patient management, each chapter offers an initial summary of a particular paediatric hematologic condition. Several key clinical scenarios set out how common difficulties should be managed, from the neonate with line thrombosis, to the newly presenting patient with leukaemia, and the child who has suffered a stroke. Covering all hematology topics on the syllabus of the American Board of Paediatrics subspecialty examinations, this authoritative guide is ideal for both postgraduates and junior doctors, whose understanding of hematological conditions will increase greatly upon reading. This comprehensive and practical book specifically aims to equip clinicians to diagnose and manage children with hematological illness, and to support them and their families.
