Description

Lanzkowsky's Manual of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology, Sixth Edition, is a comprehensive book on patient management, replete with algorithms and flow diagrams on diagnosis and management. Reflecting the considerable advances in the treatment and management of hematologic and oncologic diseases in children, the sixth edition of this successful clinical manual has been entirely updated to incorporate all current treatment protocols, new drugs, and management approaches. Its concise and easy-to-read format will enable readers to make accurate diagnoses and permit them to treat patients without having to reference larger medical textbooks. Based on the new standards of genetic classification and prognostic information that have arisen in the past five years, the sixth edition includes two new chapters (Diagnostic, Molecular, and Genomic Methodologies for the Hematologist, Transfusion Medicine) and several new expanded chapters that were previously sections in consolidated chapters (Myelodysplasia, Myeloid Leukemias, Lymphoid Leukemias, Hemolytic Anemia, and Disorders of Coagulation).show more

Review quote

"I would like to applaud Professor Philip Lanzkowsky and his colleagues for the publication of the sixth edition of Lanzkowsky's Manual of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology. As with the previous editions, the manual is a most practical tool for students, residents, and physicians in the field of hematology and oncology. It should automatically be on the list of required study for trainees and on the shelf on practicing clinicians. It provides valuable diagnostic algorithms, including state of the art diagnostic approaches and up-to-date therapeutic regimens, which influence decisions for management at the bedside. Dr. Lanzkowsky's didactic approach, the product of over five decades of academic clinical practice, permeates the book, which is distinguished by its clarity and clinical relevance." --Isaac Yaniv, MD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Tel Aviv University, Chairman The Rina Zaizov Pediatric Hematology-Oncology division, Schneider Children's Medical Center of Israel, Tel Aviv, Israel "The Lanzkowsky Manual was the first book I bought when I started my fellowship and to this day, I buy every new edition that comes out. It is my first choice `go-to' for all subjects in pediatric hematology-oncology. The book is characterized by a clarity of style, packed with useful information which is easily accessible." --Kenan Onel, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Section of Hematology-Oncology, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA "Lanzkowsky's Manual of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology has deservedly earned a worldwide reputation as the standard authoritative text on the subject. Now in its sixth edition, with an expansion of contributing authors commensurate with the major developments in the field, Professor Lanzkowsky's clarity of style and clinical relevance have remained the hallmarks of this book. It is an essential practical companion for clinicians in the field of pediatric hematology and oncology." --Victor Dubowitz, MB, ChB, MD, PhD, FRCP, FRCPH, Emeritus Professor of Pediatrics, University of London, London, UK "The Lanzkowsky Manual was the first manual I consulted when I was a resident interested in pediatric hematology and oncology; I loved its comprehensive and yet clear approach to so many topics. The manual has kept its unique place on my shelf over the years and the many editions since it was first published. I continue to consult it often for its practical guidance, and it remains a book of reference for me." --Carlos Rodriquez-Galindo, MD, Professor of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School, Director Solid Tumor Program and Medical Director Pediatric Oncology Clinical Trials, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, MA, USA "The sixth edition of the Manual of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology has now been retitled Lanzkowsky's Manual of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology in recognition of the contribution of the original editor and guiding author for over 35 years. Like all the previous editions, this edition is a highly valuable resource providing the most up-to-date information in an accessible form focusing on practical clinical information. It is a "must consult" book for all clinicians in the field. The new chapters on transfusion medicine and diagnostic, molecular, and genomic methodologies are excellent additions reflecting recent progress in these areas. This edition has been enhanced by 51 highly regarded contributing authors who are leaders in their respective fields." --Kanti Rai MD, Past President, American Society of Hematology, Professor of Medicine and Professor of Molecular Medicine, Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine, Hempstead, NY, USA "I have been using Lanzkowsky's Manual of Pediatric Hematology Oncology since it was first published in 1980. The Manual is a very valuable ready reference, written in a didactic way, filled with excellent algorithms and up-to-date treatment regimens, which are extremely useful to the clinician. I highly recommend it to all students and practitioners of pediatric hematology and oncology as an essential reference book." --Cyril Karabus MB, ChB, MMed Paed (UCT), DCH, FRCP (London), FRCP (Edin), Emeritus Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Cape Town, Cape Town, South Africashow more
