This book is designed to provide a concise yet comprehensive summary of the traditional and new definitions, prognostic markers, the pathobiology and newer hierarchal classification based on molecular genetics/chromosomal abnormalities.  It will include the most up-to-date scientific and clinical information and bring together subject matter that is usually covered separately in various specialties of hematopathology, molecular pathology, basic science and immunology. The book is written in an easy to comprehend format with emphasis on the science and illustrations to explain the same.
