Pathology and Genetics of Tumours of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues is the third volume in the new WHO series on histological and genetic typing of human tumours. This authoritative, concise reference book covers the entire range of leukaemias and lymphomas. It provides an internationalstandard for oncologists and pathologists and will serve as an indispensable guide for use in the design of studies monitoring response to therapy and clinical outcome. Diagnostic criteria, pathological features and associated genetic alterations are described in a strictly disease-oriented manner.Sections on all recognized neoplasms and their variants include new ICD-O codes, incidence, age and sex distribution, location, clinical signs and symptoms, pathology, genetics and predictive factors. The series will be continued in 2001 with monographs on tumours of the breast and female genital organs. The book is dispatched by IARC, WHO Headquarters, Oxford University Press (UK) and Oxford University Press (USA).
