Books about Hematopathology and Hematology

Many books relating to hematopathology and hematology are available. The following are just a few:

  • WHO Classification of Tumours of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues (a WHO Blue Book, 4th edition, 2008. 5th edition due out Fall, 2016). The best book of all. A fantastically concise, authoritative, well-illustrated, and inexpensive compendium of (almost) all the hematolymphoid tumors known to humankind.
  • Hematopathology, by Jaffe, Arber, Campo, Harris, and Quintanilla-Martinez. 2nd edition just published in Sept, 2016. An encyclopedic (1199 pages), outstanding source from a pathology viewpoint.
  • Hematology: Basic Principles and Practice, by Ronald Hoffman et al. An encyclopedic source for all things hematologic. Emphasis is clinical, not pathological.
  • Bone Marrow Pathology, by Kathryn Foucar. This is a big, bonny book, beautifully illustrated, fairly exhaustive, and clearly written. It includes non-neoplastic aspects of the subject.
  • Flow Cytometry in Evaluation of Hematopoietic Neoplasms: a Case-Base Approach, by Sindhu Cherian and Brent Wood. A pithy (164 pages) but valuable book about a very important ancillary technique. Brent Wood is one of the leading experts in the field.
There is a relative dearth of good, up-to-date reference books focusing soley on lymph nodes. The WHO and Hematopathology books cover the topic well. Two specialized books that might be useful are:
  • Atlas of Lymphoid Hyperplasia and Lymphoma, by Ferry and Harris.
  • Ioachim's Lymph Node Pathology, by Ioachim and Ratech. It's best feature is its deep coverage of reactive lymph node pathology.
