Prepared by residents and chief residents and reviewed by clinical faculty at the Washington University School of Medicine, this handbook is a practical guide to the diagnosis and treatment of hematologic disorders and adult malignancies. It covers both inpatient and outpatient management approaches with the same front-lines practicality as the world-famous Washington ManualŪ of Medical Therapeutics.

Coverage includes both symptom-oriented and disease-oriented management strategies and both acute and chronic problems. The authors discuss the major clinical manifestations and usual management options for each disease entity. Each chapter ends with a list of "key points to remember" and includes current references.

This handbook is also available electronically for handheld computers. See PDA listing for details.
