Main description

The first comprehensive, yet concise, clinical guide to the full spectrum of anemias

Anemias and Other Red Cell Disorders is the first resource to provide a practical diagnostic/treatment framework for identifying and successfully managing acute, congenital, and chronic anemias, and other red blood cell disorders. With its broad scope, easy-to-navigate format, and ready-to-apply diagnostic and treatment strategies, this is the most accessible - and essential - guide to anemias and related diseases ever published.


  • A complete top-to-bottom review of anemias, written with the non-specialist in mind
  • Logical chapter organization based on the clinical features that prompt the initial encounter between doctor and patient
  • Discussions of anemias related to physiological conditions such as anemia in age and pregnancy, or due to endocrine and metabolic conditions--categories that are commonly encountered in clinical practice but rarely addressed in traditional hematology texts
  • A unified patient management strategy in each consistently formatted chapter
  • Key Diagnostic Features and Key Management Issues tables within each chapter
  • Practical insights that help you review pathologic material to determine the presence and severity of the disease
  • Coverage of treatment modalities at the forefront of clinical practice, including chemotherapy, monoclonal antibodies, and stem and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation
