Comprehensive in scope and thoroughly up to date, Wintrobe’s Clinical Hematology, 15th Edition, combines the biology and pathophysiology of hematology as well as the diagnosis and treatment of commonly encountered hematological disorders. Editor-in-chief Dr. Robert T. Means, Jr., along with a team of expert section editors and contributing authors, provide authoritative, in-depth information on the biology and pathophysiology of lymphomas, leukemias, platelet destruction, and other hematological disorders as well as the procedures for diagnosing and treating them. Packed with more than 1,500 tables and figures throughout, this trusted text is an indispensable reference for hematologists, oncologists, residents, nurse practitioners, and pathologists.

  • • Integrates WHO classifications of hematologic neoplasms and the latest knowledge in genetics and genomics, and includes focused chapters on hematopoietic cell transplantation, gene therapy, and immunotherapy
  • • Emphasizes four components of diagnosis: the morphology of the peripheral smear, bone marrow, lymph nodes, and other tissues; flow cytometry; cytogenetics; and molecular markers and mutations
  • • Offers fresh perspectives from new section editors Drs. John Leonard (Lymphoma) and Laura Michaelis (Leukemia/MPN), as well as numerous new contributing authors, many of whom provide international viewpoints on hematology

"This is an excellent book for residents/fellows/and clinicians in hematology. The 13th edition is a justified replacement of the previous edition due to the advances in the understanding of the biology, diagnostic tests, and treatment options in the intervening years."

-- Robert Chen, MD (City of Hope) Doody's Review previous edition

"Overall, this edition provides ample evidence why this is a unique book in hematology, unsurpassed in its broad coverage of topics and its state-of-the-art information. It will be treasured by all clinicians who have to deal with patients with hematologic disorders."

-- Hau Kwaan, MD, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine) Doody's Review - previous edition


The intended audience encompasses the entire spectrum of healthcare providers, including medical students, nurses, residents, clinicians, and scientists, but it is most appropriate for residents, fellows, and practicing clinicians with a special interest in hematology.
