Addressing the cause of most errors in the diagnosis of hemoglobinopathies, Bain (hematology, Imperial College School of Medicine) provides an overview of these conditions with a focus on the selection, performance, and interpretation of the results of tests that should be offered by all but the very specialist referral centers. She also discusses what specialists centers will do if more tests are required, with guidance on what the results will imply. Contains many b&w and color illustrations and charts. Annotation c.
