Microscopic Haematology, 3rd Edition: A practical guide for the laboratory is arranged in a logical, easy-to-follow order.
The guide commences with the red cell series and describes normoblastic erythropoiesis, abnormal erythropoiesis and all the red cell disorders associated with anaemia.
Each type of anaemia is described with minimal text and is accompanied by coloured haematological slides depicting red cell changes associated with the particular disorder. The platelet section adheres to the same format.
Microscopic Haematology, 3rd Edition: A practical guide for the laboratory also offers a section on paediatric haematology, outlining red cell, white cell and platelet disorders occurring in cord blood, the neonate and childhood.
The final section in this expansive health reference focuses on blood parasites and describes the four species of human malaria.
A description of characteristic features in each species as it occurs in the red cell is accompanied by images depicting the various stages of maturation of each malaria species.
