There is a general need amongst healthcare professionals for
practical advice on the management of patients with bleeding
disorders. This book is an essential resource for all those working

treating hemophilia and hemostasis. It provides a practical and
informative guide to the broad range of topics concerning both

brief overview of the disorder covering: history of the disorder;
molecular basis of the disorder; class presentation; genetics;
current laboratory tests and monitoring. Cases associated with each
disorder are presented alongside practical questions and answers
from a wide range of contributors. As practice can vary from center

management; more on ITP and greater coverage of new cases as
suggested by reviewers.
