Books about Hematopathology and Hematology
Many books relating to hematopathology and hematology are available. The following are just a few:
· Neoplastic Hematopathology, by Daniel Knowles. An encyclopedic, outstanding source, from a pathology viewpoint. Excellent chapters on white cell antigens (such as are assayed by flow cytometry) and leukemia cytochemistries.
· Surgical Pathology of the Lymph Nodes and Related Organs, by Elaine Jaffe. All about lymphomas.
· Leukemia Diagnosis: a Guide to the FAB Classification, by Barbara Bain. A top-drawer survey of a sometimes complicated subject.
· Blood: Principles and Practice of Hematology, by Robert Handin et al.; Hematology: Basic Principles and Practice, by Ronald Hoffman et al.; and Williams Hematology, by Ernest Beutler et al. All 3 are encyclopedic sources for all things hematologic. Emphasis is clinical, not pathological. The last 2 are on the reference shelves and so always, in theory, available.
· Diagnostic Flow Cytometry, by John Coons; and Practical Flow Cytometry, by Howard Shapiro. Two good books on flow cytometry, the first more of an introduction, the second crammed with nuts and bolts details.
· Practical Microscopic Hematology, by Fritz Heckner et al. An introduction to the examination of blood smears.
· Neoplastic Diseases of the Blood, by Peter Wiernik et al. A thick book on leukemias and lymphomas, largely from a clinical viewpoint.
· Bone Marrow Pathology, by Kathryn Foucar. This is an excellent source and also a beautiful book. It includes non-neoplastic aspects of the subject.
