Summary This volume provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review on the field of diagnostic hematopathology as it is applied to patients with plasma cell neoplasms. The book places particular emphasis on immunophenotypic data? immunohistochemistry and flow cytometry? as well as cytogenetics, and discusses how these ancillary data can predict prognosis and chemotherapeutic response. It also provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of the current status of the field that will help guide patient management and stimulate investigative efforts. Written by experts in their fields, Plasma Cell Neoplasms serves as a very useful resource for physicians and researchers interested in plasma cell myeloma diagnosis, therapy, and research
