This volume, the latest in Karger's series of "Postgraduate Courses in Pediatrics," consists of nine short reviews of selected topics pertinent to pediatric hematology, each by a recognized authority in the field. The scope of the contents is best presented by listing the subjects and authors:
Leukemias of Childhood, J. Bernard.
Lymphocytosis and Lymphopenia in Children, C. Gasser.
Metabolic Abnormalities of the Erythrocyte, K. Betke.
Morphogenesis of Erythrocytes as a Basis for Classification of Anemias, H. Weicker.
Mechanisms of Hemolysis, M. Jeannet.
Aplastic Anemias, U. Bucher.
Structural Abnormalities of Human Hemoglobin, O Tönz.
Platelet Function, E. F. Lüscher.
Thrombocytopenia in Children, E. Gugler.
