Nathan and Oski's Hematology of Infancy and Childhood, regarded as the definitive text in pediatrie hematology, came out with a new edition in 1993. Compared with the previous edition published in 1987, this new edition has been extensively updated to keep up with the fastmoving trends in the field of pediatrie hematology.

The book, encyclopedic in its coverage, is very well organized into a twovolume text. The first volume focuses primarily on abnormalities of the red and white blood cells.

This volume also contains topics in neonatal hematology and, in particular, a very useful section on the hemostatic system
