This is volume 3 of the second edition of an encyclopedic treatment of hemolytic disorders. It is unfortunate that volumes 1 and 2 were published seven and five years respectively before volume 3, because the earlier volumes are now incomplete, in light of subsequent developments.

Volume 3 considers hemolytic anemias which are secondary or symptomatic in origin. The organization of the material is such that the monograph is presented in three chapters. Chapter 1 (13) deals with hemolytic states associated with Hodgkin's disease, leukemia, and other malignancies — particularly those involving the reticuloendothelial structures. Chapter 2 (14) discusses hemolytic disease associated with lupus erythematosus, ulcerative colitis, liver and renal diseases, and the vasculitides in general. Chapter 3 (15) examines hemolytic states associated with a heterogenous group of diseases, including infections, sarcoidosis, pregnancy, hypersplenism, vitamin deficiencies, radiation, hyperoxia, marrow hypoplasia, burns, cardiac surgery, valvular disease of the heart, and march hemoglobinuria.
