Expert Review

Description This is a review of clinical hematology and coagulation concepts, principles, and practices that are assessed in the clinical pathology board exam.

Purpose The purpose is to provide a "strong foundation for students, residents and fellows embarking on the journey of mastering hematology" and to be a reference for preparation for the exam.

Audience This book was written for "students, residents and fellows." It would be of interest to any pathologist or laboratory medicine practitioner in practice wanting a quick review of the subject. It may be of interest to other medical practitioners who want to gain some insight into contemporary hematology and coagulation testing (e.g., primary care physicians, specialists, etc.). The first author is relatively new to this field, but the senior author is widely published and internationally respected in the fields of clinical chemistry and toxicology.

Features The 17 chapters cover most aspects of laboratory hematology, hematopathology, and coagulation. Each chapter follows a standard format of an introduction, explanation of standard tests/interpretations/processes, ending with a bulleted list of key points. This is a pretty comprehensive book, written in a no-frills, concise manner. I agree with the authors if the reader knows the majority of the material in this book, s/he is ready for the American Board of Pathology exam. There are no photomicrographs and only one flow cytometry figure in the book, instead readers are referred to online image banks for examples. Chapter 17, which discusses sources of error in hematology and coagulation, is relatively unique and enlightening. Experienced hematology laboratory directors would find this chapter useful.

Assessment This is a great book to review in preparation for the clinical pathology board exam.

Reviewer: Valerie Ng, PhD MD (Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital)
