This atlas provides information on hematologic cellular morphology. Over 400 photographs, schematic diagrams, and electron micrographs illustrate hematology from normal cell maturation to the development of various pathologies. Introductory chapters describe the peripheral blood smear, its preparation and examination, and hematopoiesis in general. The chapters on cellular maturation include schematics that illustrate the maturation of each cell line individually and highlight the cell in question. Numerous illustrations such as, schematic diagrams, photomicrographs, and electron micrographs are found in every chapter, visually enhancing descriptions of hematologic cellular morphology. Descriptive text accompanies each cell type that includes size, reference intervals, and nuclear and cytoplasmic characteristics. A schematic overview of hematopoiesis, along with a presentation of each cell, demonstrates the relationship between individual stages of hematopoiesis and the overall developmental scheme. Chapters on erythrocytes and leukocytes present morphologic abnormalities, along with a description of each cell, in a schematic fashion to provide correlations to various disease states. The most common cytochemical stains, along with a summary chart for interpretation, are presented in the leukemia chapters to aid in classifying both malignant and benign leukoproliferative disorders. A chapter on Body Fluids covers other fluids found in the body besides blood, using images from cytocentrifuged specimens. A white blood cell differential tableshows all cells found in a normal white blood cell differential in one convenient location.
