Oncology of Infancy and Childhood
Expert Consult - Online and Print
To address the growing complexities of childhood cancer, Nathan and Oski’s Hematology and Oncology of Infancy and Childhood has now been separated into two distinct volumes. With this volume devoted strictly to pediatric oncology, and another to pediatric hematology, you will be on the cutting edge of these two fields. This exciting new, full-color reference provides you with the most comprehensive, authoritative, up-to-date information for diagnosing and treating children with cancer. It brings together the pathophysiology of disease with detailed clinical guidance on diagnosis and management for the full range of childhood cancers, including aspects important in optimal supportive care. Written by the leading names in pediatric oncology, this resource is an essential tool for all who care for pediatric cancer patients. And, as an Expert Consult title, this brand-new resource comes with access to the complete contents online, fully searchable.

"The chapter on the Thalassemias is also very profound and especially the discussion of the alpha Thalassemia with intellectual disability/mental retardation, which is a rare but maybe an under-diagnosed entity. All in all, this is a book that should be in the library of every pediatric department around the world." JAMH, 2009
"All in all the editors should be congratulated for a work well done, and this book should also find its place in every paediatric department library." JAMH, 2009
