This book provides a review of chromosomal and molecular changes in hematologic malignancies and correlates the karyotypic and genetic abnormalities with morphology, immunophenotype, and clinical data. It is divided into three chapters. The first describes the karyotype and the basics of cytogenetics, FISH, and molecular testing. Chapter 2 lists the most common chromosomal and molecular aberrancies and their utility in diagnosis, prognosis, and monitoring. Chapter 3 covers specific hematologic malignancies and provides a short description of the clinical, pathologic, and cytogenetic/molecular characteristics.
