About this book


Many comprehensive text books have been written about the common hematologic malignancies. However, every practicing hematologist/oncologist or primary care physician intermittently encounters patients with uncommon or rare hematologic malignancies. Information concerning these diseases, and particularly regarding their management, is extremely difficult to find. Physicians will commonly spend a substantial period of time searching the medical literature for topics gathered in this important compendium.

Rare Hematological Malignancies covers malignant hematologic diseases that physicians would see only occasionally, providing accurate, up-to-date information on the disease biology and practical recommendations concerning the disease management.


"This text covers a spectrum of hematologic diseases that have unique features and present a challenge in management. Distinguished leaders in the field discuss the latest advances for each entity covering both investigative and clinical issues. The book serves as an important resource for physicians encountering these uncommon hematologic malignancies."

Steven T. Rosen, M.D.
