The second edition begins with chapters on the history of neonatal hematology, hematopoiesis, and the immunologic system.

Review quote

Review of the first edition: 'This is a first-rate review of some of the problems in neonatal hematology ... A large number of well-known hematologists have contributed to this book ... well illustrated with black and white photographs, charts and schematic diagrams.' Julian L. Ambrus, The Journal of Medicine '... it is invaluable to all adult trainees involved in paediatric calls and advice, and I would strongly advise all haematology departments to own a copy of this book for reference, and I'm sure some individual trainees with an interest/fear in this area should invest in a copy as well.'
