Essential Haematology is established as the most authoritative introduction to haematology. Beautifully presented, it introduces the formation and function of blood cells and diseases that arise from dysfunction and disruption of these processes. Basic science, diagnostic tests, clinical features and management are all clearly explained. The book outlines the basic principles of clinical and laboratory haematology and shows how manifestations of blood diseases can be explained by new knowledge of the disease processes.

For the first time, Essential Haematology is fully supported by a suite of online MCQs and answers, and is now available as a FREE enhanced Wiley Desktop Edition (upon purchase of the book).

  • Thoroughly updated to reflect the latest research in this fast-moving field
  • Contains summary boxes at the end of each chapter
  • Includes an expanded treatment range and an expanded section on bone marrow failure and transplantation
  • Includes a companion website at www.wiley.com/go/essentialhaematology featuring figures and tables from the book for downloading, and interactive multiple choice questions prepared by the authors
