This book provides a comprehensive overview of benign hematologic disorders in children. Divided into nine sections, the text reviews common hematologic disorders or conditions that affect children, while providing state-of-the-art information on pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment, and management strategies.
The text begins with a section on hematopoiesis, and the next section covers red blood cell disorders. The following sections provide overviews of platelet disorders, white blood cell disorders, and coagulation disorders. The sixth and seventh sections discuss neonatal hematology and bone marrow failure syndrome. The eighth section reviews supportive care, while the final section covers miscellaneous subjects including pediatric vascular anomalies and complement dysregulation syndromes.
Written by experts in the field, Benign Hematologic Disorders in Children: A Clinical Guide is a valuable resource for clinicians and practitioners who treat children afflicted with these disorders.
