Written by three experts in the field from the UK and USA, Fast Facts: Lymphoma applies an international perspective to this challenging disease in a unique format within the context of clinical practice. It is a valuable resource for trainee doctors and specialist nurses working in the field of hemato-oncology. It will also be of interest to the inquiring patient or carer who wishes to know more about lymphoma.

Hodgkin lymphoma and the many different subtypes of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) have different responses to treatment, so accurate diagnosis and a rational approach to management are essential.

- A clear outline of the nature of lymphoma

- The latest laboratory diagnostics, including immunophenotyping, cytogenetics and microarray technology
- Key aspects of staging and initial therapy
- Superbly illustrated overviews of the pathology, presentation, treatment and prognosis of each lymphoma subtype
