Hematology: An Atlas and Diagnostic Guide

This book is written mainly for residents in pathology and hematology. It was not intended for pediatricians; however, references to pediatric hematology are scattered throughout the book, and a separate chapter was written that specifically surveys some of the hematologic problems of infancy and childhood.

The book is designated: An Atlas and Diagnostic Guide. As an atlas, little attention is given to the morphology of normal hematopoietic cells. The author refers the reader to "the morphologic descriptions of the maturation sequence of erythroid and myeloid cells and megakaryocytes" in other "textbooks and atlases of hematology." This is a serious deficiency for an atlas of hematology. A work sheet for a bone marrow report is presented that also ignores the maturation sequence of hematopoietic cells by excluding the differential cell count. Newer developments in hematology are incorporated into the atlas. Thus, photomicrographs of Romanovsky's stains of blood and bone marrow smears
