Despite numerous scientific and medical advances, a diagnosis of leukemia
still causes great fear. With recent advances in knowledge and treatment,
the prognosis has clearly improved for certain subsets of patients with leukemia.
Keeping up-to-date with current clinical advances is quite a challenge for
the busy clinician. The seventh edition of Leukemia is
a comprehensive and authoritative textbook on the subject and is a welcome
addition to the medical literature.
