Bone Marrow Diagnosis is an essential resource for all those who need to report bone marrow trephine biopsies. The text will be succinct and concentrates on the core information necessary to make an accurate diagnosis. Each diagnostic entity will be accompanied by high quality images which show typical and more unusual examples of histological features.
Each section will be comprehensively revised by an international team of authors. Over 900 high quality colour images will accompany each diagnostic entity. There will be coverage of cytology in sections relating to myeloid dysplasias and acute leukaemias, as well as incorporating new WHO classification of lymphomas and leukaemias.
The digitally photographed and remastered images in this new edition will be of the highest quality, put onto disk directly from the microscope in digital format and reproduced in print form. The text will give comparisons of the common methods of sample collection, fixation and staining, and a clear description of how to examine a trephine section. It will cover the disorders of bone marrow, discussing the clinical features, histopathology of bone marrow and diagnostic problems of each condition. Chapters close with a summary of key points. The consistent approach to describing each condition makes this a valuable reference tool for the trainee and practicing histopathologists, pathologists and haematologists.
