Meeting the needs for haematologists and clinical chemists for an up to date reference, this atlas provides a visual presentation of myeloproliferative neoplasms and myeloid leukaemia. Compiled by leading experts in the UK, each individual disease is surveyed by chapter, covering the clinical presentation, haematological and pathological features, immunophenotyping and cytogenetic and genetic abnormalities. Diagnosis and differential diagnosis is discussed, and prognosis and treatment options are reviewed. The book is heavily illustrated throughout with colour photographs and diagrams. This atlas fills a gap in the literature and is an essential resource for all haematologists. Its companion volume in the series comprises an illustrated guide to lymphoid malignancies.
