The Textbook of Hemophilia has become a definitive resource for all those managing hemophilia patients. It covers all the common and rare bleeding disorders, both in terms of clinical management as well as the genetic, laboratory, financial and psychological aspects.

This second edition covers all the latest developments in the field of hemophilia, with new chapters on:

  • the genetic and molecular basis of inherited blood disorders
  • how to manage adolescent and older patients
  • emergency medicine and inherited blood disorders
  • national hemophilia databases

Drawing on the vast experience of the authors, the aim of this textbook remains the same - to improve the care of patients suffering from hemophilia. The book is full of detailed guidance and advice on everyday clinical questions making it invaluable to all trainee and practicing hematologists.
