Leukaemia Diagnosis Authoritative reference on classifying and diagnosing leukaemia, with practical guidance on using various laboratory techniques included

Leukaemia Diagnosis is a practical reference on the principles of leukaemia diagnosis and classification that illustrates and explains in a user-friendly way how different laboratory techniques are used to achieve an accurate interpretation. To aid in reader comprehension, over 300 high quality full colour digital images of abnormal cells in leukaemia and lymphoma are included, supplemented by histological, cytogenetic and immunophenotyping images.

This newly revised and updated Sixth Edition includes recent developments, highlights the growing importance of molecular genetics, and incorporates the recent 5th edition of the WHO guidelines and the International Consensus Classification for leukaemia diagnosis and classification throughout the text. Information on cytogenetic and molecular genetic abnormalities in leukaemia is also included, along with characteristic immunophenotypic characteristics of different categories of leukaemia.

Written by world-renowned authors in the field, Barbara Bain and Mike Leach, Leukaemia Diagnosis covers sample topics such as:

The nature of leukaemia, cytology, cytochemistry, and the morphological classification of acute leukaemia, with an index of commonly used abbreviations
Immunophenotyping and cytogenetic/molecular genetic analysis, and integration of morphological, immunophenotypic and genetic information with the WHO classifications
Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, acute leukaemia of ambiguous lineage, and the myelodysplastic syndromes and myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative neoplasms
Chronic myeloid leukaemias, lymphoid leukaemias of mature B, T, and natural killer cells, and leukaemia diagnosis in resource-poor countries

The Sixth Edition of Leukaemia Diagnosis is a highly valuable resource for trainee haematologists and laboratory scientists in haematology and related disciplines. The text also serves as a useful reference and teaching aid for those who already have expertise in this field.
