Bringing together intellectual and scientific experts from pediatrics, adolescent medicine, general medicine, pathology, biology, nursing and psychology, this book is the first of its kind to cover the topics of leukemias and lymphomas in young patients ranging from infants to young adults. The content is organized and subdivided into four major sections — under the main headings of General Considerations, Pathobiology, Clinical Manifestations and Treatment, and Supportive Care and Complications — for ease of reference to readers. Hematological Malignancies in Children, Adolescents and Young Adults presents a comprehensive multidisciplinary review of the field of hematological malignancies and brings forth illuminating perspectives from an internationally recognized group of leading authorities in the field.
