Haematology is a dynamic medical discipline that has witnessed rapid advances in all aspects and its scope has widened across diverse medical specialties. This mini atlas provides an introduction to the subject and outlines basic principles in the diagnosis of important and most haematological conditions. It is not intended to be used as a comprehensive reference, instead it provides a “quick look” at essential information.

The book is divided into 6 chapters – an overview of blood physiology, anaemias, white blood cell disorders, haemostasis disorders, blood transfusion, and blood parasites. Each chapter is lavishly illustrated with full colour images. A free photo CD Rom is included so that the images can be seen in large format on screen.

In summary this mini atlas is an excellent revision guide that vies concise clear information in a pictorial and easy to read format.
