Books about Hematopathology and Hematology
Many books relating to hematopathology and hematology are available. The following are just a few:
There is a relative dearth of good, up-to-date reference books focusing soley on lymph nodes. Two that might be useful are:
- Pathology and Genetics of Tumors of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues (a WHO Blue Book). The best book of all. A fantastically concise, authoritative, well-illustrated, and inexpensive compendium of all the hematolymphoid tumors known to humankind.
- Neoplastic Hematopathology, by Daniel
Knowles. An encyclopedic, outstanding source, from a pathology viewpoint.
Excellent chapters on white cell antigens (such as are assayed by flow
cytometry) and leukemia cytochemistries. Getting a little old (2001).
- Blood: Principles and Practice of Hematology,
by Robert Handin et al.; Hematology: Basic Principles and Practice,
by Ronald Hoffman et al.; and Williams Hematology, by Ernest Beutler
et al. All 3 are encyclopedic sources for all things hematologic. Emphasis
is clinical, not pathological.
- Bone Marrow Pathology, by Kathryn Foucar. This is a big, bonny book, beautifully illustrated, fairly exhaustive, and clearly written. It includes non-neoplastic
aspects of the subject.
- Flow Cytometry in Clinical Diagnosis, by David Keren et al. and Flow Cytometry in Hematopathology, by Nguyen et al.: two good books on a very important ancillary technique.
- Neoplastic Diseases of the Blood, by Peter
Wiernik et al. A thick book on leukemias and lymphomas, largely from a
- Atlas of Lymphoid Hyperplasia and Lymphoma, by Ferry and Harris.
- Ioachim's Lymph Node Pathology, by Ioachim and Ratech. It's best feature is its deep coverage of reactive lymph node pathology.
