Lanzkowsky's Manual of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology

Lanzkowsky’s Manual of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology, Sixth Edition, is a comprehensive book on patient management, replete with algorithms and flow diagrams on diagnosis and management. Reflecting the considerable advances in the treatment and management of hematologic and oncologic diseases in children, the sixth edition of this successful clinical manual has been entirely updated to incorporate all current treatment protocols, new drugs, and management approaches. Its concise and easy-to-read format will enable readers to make accurate diagnoses and permit them to treat patients without having to reference larger medical textbooks. 

Based on the new standards of genetic classification and prognostic information that have arisen in the past five years, the sixth edition includes two new chapters (Diagnostic, Molecular, and Genomic Methodologies for the Hematologist, Transfusion Medicine) and several new expanded chapters that were previously sections in consolidated chapters (Myelodysplasia, Myeloid Leukemias, Lymphoid Leukemias, Hemolytic Anemia, and Disorders of Coagulation).
Presents a concise, systematic approach to all pediatric hematologic and oncologic disorders in one manualOffers an alternative to bigger references which only cover either oncologic or hematologic disorders in twice as many pagesPresents an easy-to-read format: multiple tables, charts, and flow-diagrams for diagnosis and management of pediatric hematologic and oncologic disordersIncludes 2 new chapters and several expanded chapters: Diagnostic, Molecular and Genomic Methodologies for the Hematologist, Transfusion Medicine, Myelodysplasia, Myeloid Leukemias, and Lymphoid Leukemias
