This will be the fifth edition of successful clinical manual
aimed at all practitioners treating children with cancer and blood
diseases, such as leukemia, anemia, and bone marrow failure. As
with previous editions, this edition will be a comprehensive book
on patient management, replete with algorithms and flow diagrams on
diagnosis and management. Its concise and easy-to-read format will
enable readers to make accurate diagnoses and permit them to treat
patients even if they have not had extensive previous hematologic

various ages in children, which is extremely useful as a reference
