Hematological disorders in children and adolescents pose a wide range of management challenges and treatment dilemmas.
In this book an internationally acclaimed panel of authors, each chosen for expertise in their field, have produced a state-of-the-art collection of review articles focusing on the very latest advances and controversies in the management of pediatric and adolescent hematological problems. The whole range of benign and malignant, congenital and acquired, acute and chronic conditions is discussed in detail. Individual chapters cover hematologic problems on the pediatric intensive care unit, treatments for iron deficiency and ITP; advances in stem cell transplantation, gene therapy, novel pharmaceutics and molecular diagnostics, as well as transition from child to adult are also explored.
Providing an up-to-date look at both specific hematologic disorders in the pediatric and adolescent population and also hematologic problems that arise in association with systemic disease, this book is essential reading not only for pediatric and adult hematologists but also for pediatricians, pediatric or hematologic specialist nurse practitioners and pediatric pharmacologists.
