The discipline of hematology ranges widely from the diagnosis and management of anemia to hematologic malignancies and transfusion medicine, and involves significant ethical issues and problems in statistical interpretation. In Primary Hematology, Ayalew Tefferi, MD, and a team of authoritative practicing physicians concisely detail their most effective approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of hematological disorders, including anemia and other cytopenias, primary and secondary myeloproliferative disorders, lymphoid and plasma cell disorders, and thrombotic and bleeding disorders. For each illness these expert clinicians provide a brief review of basic concepts and a discussion of its symptomology and classification, its diagnostic tests, and strategies for its management, along with suggested readings for more detailed information. Numerous decision trees clarify diagnosis, and summary boxes highlight key points and dosage parameters. Other areas covered include leukemias and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, transfusion medicine, hereditary hemochromatosis, the hematologic manifestations of HIV disease, porphyria, and the use of hematopoietc growth factors in clinical practice. Concise, practical, and up-to-date, Primary Hematology offers busy primary care physicians, internists, hematologists, and oncologists a much-needed action-oriented summary of proven approaches to the optimal diagnosis and treatment of hematologic disorders today
