    Hematology encompasses numerous diseases, and it is easy to get lost in the details of a reference text. This book focuses on seeing the overall clinical picture in a brief, clear manner. It offers a practical overview of the range of common hematologic disorders, with their diagnoses and treatments. The book is directed toward the medical, nursing, and PA student as well as the general practitioner, who would like a brief overview of the key and practical clinical aspects of Hematology, with understanding, rather than rote memorization.
