Hematology is one of the rapidly expanding fields of medicine and emerging as a clinical specialty in its own right. Hematology is difficult to teach at the undergraduate level, as it is a part of the curriculum in Pathology, during which undergraduate students do not have enough exposure to diseases of blood. This results in less attention to hematological diseases at undergraduate level. After many years of teaching undergraduates, we found that undergraduate students either neglect hematology or find it difficult to understand the subject. It is a nightmare for many students especially during examinations. There are many hematology textbooks, but undergraduates face difficulties to refresh their knowledge of hematology during examinations. This encouraged us to write a book to fill the niche, to provide basic information to an undergraduate in a nutshell. With this view in mind, Rapid Review of Hematology is intended for the undergraduates from medical, dental and paramedical fields. Most students are fundamentally “visually oriented”. As the saying “one picture worth thousand words”, it encouraged us to provide many illustrations (e.g. etiopathogenesis, clinical presentation, complications, peripheral blood smear and other relevant laboratory tests).
