Is it a Dichotomy between the Clinician and the Pathologist in Hematology?

  • Jacques P. Caen


In conjunction with the profound changes which have taken place in the whole field of medicine since 1940, the study of the blood and of disorders of the blood has played an important and sometimes decisive role. As the result of hematologic research, important new disciplines have arisen. Blood serology, blood banking or transfusion has made modern surgery possible. Considerable help has come to modern chemotherapy through the study of numerous agents acting on the blood-forming organs. Study of the lymphocyte has made decisive progress in immunology possible. Last, but not least, the study of modern hemostasis has made it possible for hematologists to make important contributions to understanding of thrombotic, vascular and even atherosclerotic diseases.
