Wintrobe’s Clinical Hematology

JAMA. 2009;302(22):2488-2493. doi:10.1001/jama.2009.1818

This is the 12th and most complete iteration of Wintrobe's Clinical Hematology, first published in 1942 by Maxwell Meyer Wintrobe, a leading hematologist at that time. In the years since, the book has been updated, the science elaborated, and the number of editors expanded. Yet subsequent editions have retained the strength of the first edition. A preface summarizes Wintrobe's many contributions to the study of blood, and the introduction, written by the founding editor, illuminates a vision that still resonates in the new millennium. The current editorial team consists of the 5 experts who edited the previous edition, along with 2 new editors. All are experts in pediatric or adult hematology/hematopathology, and all are located in North America. More than 150 author-experts have contributed.
