Summary This book acts as a clinical manual for the diagnostician who cannot turn to reference books when the morphology or immunophenotype are atypical. This volume presents a logical practical approach to the diagnosis of blood disorders, both neoplastic and reactive, and other diagnostic applications of flow cytometry in non-neoplastic haematology diagnosis. Illustrations are provided throughout with worked examples
