One attraction of the clinical discipline of hematology has been the ability to diagnose blood cell disorders quickly and relatively simply using tests that can be performed in a hematologist’s office: notably, blood cell counts, blood films, the reticulocyte count, and film of the marrow aspirate. Now these procedures are often performed in clinical laboratories, most with automated techniques. Nevertheless a physician, experienced and competent in the interpretation of blood counts and blood film, can determine the diagnosis or can reach a very limited differential diagnosis, quickly, in many cases.

Despite the increased specificity of hematological diagnosis provided by important ancillary analytical techniques, in many cases the blood counts and the blood and marrow films still permit the physician, expert in hematology, to deduce much of the information required to reach a diagnosis and to plan therapy. This initial diagnostic consideration can be supplemented by the important, indeed sometimes vital, additional testing available. Nevertheless, the presence of polychromatophilic macrocytes (reticulocytes) and characteristic red cell shape changes on the blood film may point to the specific type of hemolytic anemia, the white cell count and the differential count may be diagnostic of one of several types of leukemia, the platelet prevalence and morphology may be indicative of any of several thrombocytic disorders, and innumerable other diseases may be detected with the blood or marrow film, e.g., myeloma, lymphoma, Gaucher disease, Chediak-Higashi disease, and many others. A number of infectious diseases may be evident by the organisms parasitizing red or white cells. Numerous such examples are represented in this Atlas

The intent of this work is to provide on-line access to images that are characteristic of a wide array of hematological disorders and other disorders that affect the blood, enhancing written descriptions found in Williams Hematology and other relevant medical books published on-line by McGraw-Hill. This Atlas permits an extensive presentation of blood, marrow, lymph node, spleen, and other organ pathology that would be too costly to be included in the print version of the text.
