By (author): Elaine Sarkin Jaffe
“Pathology and Genetics of Tumours of the Haematopoietic and Lymphoid System” is the third volume in the WHO series on histological and genetic typing of human tumours. This authoritative, concise reference book provides an international standard for pathologists and oncologists and will serve as an indispensable guide for use in the design of studies monitoring response to therapy and clinical outcome.
The volume covers chronic myeloproliferative diseases, myeloplastic / myeloproliferative diseases, myelodisplastic syndromes, acute myeloid leukaemia, precursor B- and T-cell neoplasms, mature B-cell, T-cell and NK-cell neoplasms, Hodgkin lymphoma, immunodeficiency-associated lymphoproliferative disorders, histiocytic and dendritic cell neoplasms, and mastocytosis. Diagnostic criteria, pathological features, associated genetic altertions and gene expression patterns are described in a strictly disease-oriented manner. Sections on all recognized neoplasms and their variants include new ICD-O codes, incidence, age and sex distribution, location, clinical signs and symptoms, pathology, genetics, and predictive factors.
