Pathologists and clinicians who must deal with leukemia will find this volume of interest. It is profusely illustrated, and most photographs and photomicrographs are of excellent quality. Based on a good deal of personal experience and an extensive literature review, the author presents the postmortem findings in various types of leukemia as they occurred in the past and as they now are modified by treatment regimens. In addition, much attention is given to common complications of the disease and the powerful drugs employed.

Cooperating authors have contributed special chapters on electron microscopy, histochemical enzymology, cytogenetics, and hemorrhagic tendencies. Large, clear, well-labeled electron photomicrographs are shown and described. The chapter on histochemical enzymology can serve as a manual for those who would dabble in this area.
