This third edition is the product of the author’s 25 years of experience with flow cytometry; although it covers the wide spectrum of hematopoietic tumors, the focus remains on most important clinical diagnoses, such as acute promyelocytic leukemia, identification of blasts, identification of clonal B-cell population, differentiating mature versus immature T-cell proliferations, deferential diagnosis between hematogones and B-ALL or distinction between chronic and acute monocytic proliferations. All hematopathologists and neoplastic hematologists will find this an important resource for keeping up to date with developments in clinical practice.
Effective treatment of the tumors of the hematopoietic system now often depends on an exact prognosis for the disorder concerned, and so the hematopathologist can give vital direction to the hematologic or oncologic clinician. Prognostic Markers in Hemato
