Based on the new standards of genetic classification and prognostic information that have arisen in the past five years, the sixth edition includes two new chapters (Diagnostic, Molecular, and Genomic Methodologies for the Hematologist, Transfusion Medicine) and several new expanded chapters that were previously sections in consolidated chapters (Myelodysplasia, Myeloid Leukemias, Lymphoid Leukemias, Hemolytic Anemia, and Disorders of Coagulation).
- Presents a concise, systematic approach to all pediatric hematologic and oncologic disorders in one manual- Offers an alternative to bigger references which only cover either oncologic or hematologic disorders in twice as many pages- Presents an easy-to-read format: multiple tables, charts, and flow-diagrams for diagnosis and management of pediatric hematologic and oncologic disorders- Includes 2 new chapters and several expanded chapters: Diagnostic, Molecular and Genomic Methodologies for the Hematologist, Transfusion Medicine, Myelodysplasia, Myeloid Leukemias, and Lymphoid Leukemias

Dr. Philip Lanzkowsky was born in Cape Town on March 17, 1932 and graduated high school from the South African College and obtained his MB ChB degree from the University of Cape Town School of Medicine in 1954 and his Doctorate degree in 1959 for his thesis on Iron Deficiency Anemia In Children. He completed a pediatric residency at the Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital in Cape Town in 1960. After working in Pediatrics at the University of Edinburgh and at St Mary's Hospital of the University of London, Dr. Lanzkowsky did a pediatric Hematology-Oncology fellowship at Duke University School of Medicine and at the University of Utah.
In 1963 he was appointed Consultant Pediatrician and Pediatric Hematologist to the Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital at the University of Cape Town and introduced Pediatric Hematology and Oncology as a distinct discipline. In 1965 he was appointed Director of Pediatric Hematology and Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the New York Hospital-Cornell University School of Medicine.
