There have been remarkable advances in the understanding of the pathogenesis of diseases of the blood and lymphatic system and in the treatment of these diseases, since the 6th Edition of Essential Haematology was published in 2011. This new knowledge is due largely to the application of next generation sequencing of DNA which has enabled the detection of the genetic mutations, inherited or acquired, that underlie these diseases. As examples, sequencing has revealed the CALR mutation underlying a substantial proportion of patients with myeloproliferative diseases and the MYD88 mutation present in almost all cases of Waldenström’s macrogobulinaemia. Multiple ‘driver’ gene mutations affecting signalling pathways and epigenetic reactions involved in cell proliferation and survival have been discovered which underlie myelodysplasia, acute myeloid and lymphoblastic leukaemias, chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and the lymphomas. The complexity of the molecular changes underlying the malignant diseases and the relevance of this to their sensitivity or resistance to therapy is becoming apparent. This new knowledge has been accompanied by spectacular improvements in therapy. Inhibition of the B cell receptor signalling pathway has transformed the life expectancy in many patients with resistant chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and some of the B cell lymphomas resistant to other therapy. JAK2 inhibitors are improving the quality of life and survival in primary myelofibrosis. Survival in myeloma is improving remarkably with new proteasome inhibitory and immunomodulatory drugs. Life expectancy has also improved for patients with diseases such as thalassaemia major receiving multiple transfusions with the worldwide introduction of orally active iron chelating agents. New anticoagulants which directly inhibit at a single point in the coagulation cascade and rarely need monitoring are now used commonly in preference to warfarin for the treatment and prevention of arterial and venous thrombosis. These advances in knowledge have been incorporated as new text, diagrams and tables for this seventh edition. New multiple choice questions have been added to the website and short summary boxes are included at the end of each chapter. We thank Dr Trevor Baglin for his helpful suggestions for the coagulation section of the book. We wish to thank our publishers Wiley‐Blackwell and the staff who have helped us with the production of this 7th Edition. We also thank Jane Fallows for once more producing clear, expertly drawn scientific diagrams. We hope it will be widely used both by undergraduates and by postgraduates in medicine and related sciences wishing to gain a grounding in one of the most exciting and advanced fields of medicine.

Mit dem Tod ist keinesfalls alles vorbei. Leichen sind auf vielfältige Weise nützlich, indem sie Forschung und Wissenschaft zur Verfügung stehen. Sie helfen dabei, Autos sicherer zu machen, dienen als Anschauungs- und Übungsobjekte für angehende Ärzte und geben Gerichtsmedizinern wichtige Hinweise, mit denen Verbrechen aufgeklärt werden können. Sie wurden ins All geschossen, haben die ersten Guillotinen und sogar die Echtheit des Turiner Grabtuchs getestet. Mary Roach hat die vielfältigen postmortalen Verwendungsformen recherchiert und mit Ärzten, Wissenschaftlern und Leichenbestattern darüber gesprochen, was man mit Leichen alles anfangen kann. Daraus ist ein überaus unterhaltsames, faszinierendes und skurriles Buch entstanden, auch wenn die Hauptakteure in Anatomiesälen, Laboratorien und Krematorien zu finden sind.

The approach described in this book is different from that in most student texts, and has been very successful in practice, starting almost from scratch, but omitting many of the ‘basics’ such as the details of hematopoiesis, laboratory technology, and so on, which are hardly relevant to the practising clinician and student in the wards, and are primarily of interest to the hematologist and sometimes to the clinical specialist. Considerable emphasis is given to the clinical history and examination, and the interpretation of the clinical patterns thus exposed. Hopefully it will overcome many of the traditional problems experienced in practical diagnostic haematology.

Ferritin im Eisenstoffwechsel

Diagnostische Strategien

Eisenstoffwechselstörungen, insbesondere der Eisenmangel, zählen zu den am häufigsten übersehenen oder fehlgedeuteten Erkrankungen. Dies liegt insbesondere daran, daß die in der konventionellen Diagnostik angewandte Bestimmung des Transporteisens im Serum bzw. Plasma wegen der kurzfristigen Schwankungen keine repräsentative Abschätzung der Gesamtkörpereisenreserven erlaubt. War dies früher nur durch die aufwendige und invasive Speichereisenbestimmung im Knochenmark möglich, so gestatten heute empfindliche, gut standardisierte immunchemische Verfahren eine präzise Bestimmung des Eisenspeicherproteins Ferritin im Plasma. Da dessen Sekretion in der Mehrzahl der Fälle die Depoteisenreserven korrekt wiederspiegelt, ermöglicht dies eine schnelle und sichere Diagnose, insbesondere von Eisenmangelzuständen. Wegen der Häufigkeit des Eisenmangels und der meist einfachen Therapie sollte diese Erkenntnis zum medizinischen Allgemeingut gehören. Das vorliegende Buch trägt zu einem besseren Verständnis der wesentlichen pathophysiologischen Grundlagen und diagnostischen Prinzipien bei.

Data interpretation questions based on clinical cases are a popular means of testing medical students both during undergraduate studies and as an element of finals examinations. Written by a small team of authors with extensive teaching experience, 100 Cases in Medical Data Interpretation provides invaluable guidance from lecturers who understand from personal experience that detailed and accurate explanations are the key to successful revision. This book presents 100 cases arranged by specialty area—radiology, clinical chemistry, haematology and cardiology—as well as a random section of miscellaneous cases. Questions accompanying each case prompt the reader to consider how the data presented might be correctly understood. A clear discussion of how the correct answer was reached, with boxed highlights and bullet lists of key points, makes this book an excellent learning aid during all stages of clinical studies, and particularly while preparing for medical finals.
