This ABC has established itself as a popular introduction to Clinical Haematology, relevant both for postgraduate students and primary care practitioners. Now in its third edition, the ABC of Clinical Haematology has been thoroughly revised, featuring the latest treatments for leukemia, antithrombotics and drugs for lymphoma and covering the latest advances in hematology and bone marrow transplantation.

With each chapter written by specialists in their respective fields, this is an ideal basic text for general practice and hospital staff with patients who have blood related problems, in particular GPs, hematology nurses, junior doctors, hematologists, and trainees in hematology.
