Specialization[ edit ] Physicians specialized in hematology are known as hematologists or haematologists. Their routine work mainly includes the care and treatment of patients with hematological diseases, although some may also work at the hematology laboratory viewing blood films and bone marrow slides under the microscope , interpreting various hematological test results and blood clotting test results. In some institutions, hematologists also manage the hematology laboratory. Physicians who work in hematology laboratories, and most commonly manage them, are pathologists specialized in the diagnosis of hematological diseases, referred to as hematopathologists or haematopathologists. Hematologists and hematopathologists generally work in conjunction to formulate a diagnosis and deliver the most appropriate therapy if needed. Hematology is a distinct subspecialty of internal medicine, separate from but overlapping with the subspecialty of medical oncology. Hematologists may specialize further or have special interests, for example, in: treating bleeding disorders such as hemophilia and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura treating hematological malignancies such as lymphoma and leukemia cancers.

It has a distinguished year record of organizing Annual Hematology Congress of the highest quality, many of which have accommodated over 1, attendees.

Hematology Board Review

The history of this congress dates back to TSH has broadened its concept and has planned an outstanding event based on the recent advances in bone marrow transplantation and stem cell therapies. The scientific program of the ICLLM Congress boasts most of the hematology masters who aim to provide a perfect balance between clinical education and news of the latest scientific developments. World renowned hematologists specialized in their areas are invited to this congress.

Participants from different countries attend to the congress. TSH covers their travel expenses and provides monthly payment.


Eight hematologists are presently benefiting from this program and began or completed their six-month study.

There are 17 fellows who trained with this grant.

Each project is evaluated by referees. In the absence of an HLA-matched sibling, allogeneic BMT can also be performed using an HLA-matched, unrelated donor or stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood [ 6 ].

The hemolytic anemias, have multiple causes, and the clinical presentation that can be differ according to the etiology. Many laboratory tests and specialized one can detect the cause of hemolysis, to reach specific diagnosis.

With advancement in electrophoretic and other biochemical techniques, hemoglobinopathies are being identified now which were not previously possible. There are differences in the management of various types of hemolytic anemias [ 7 ]. Hemoglobinopathies requiring long life transfusion program to maintain a safe hemoglobin level for hemodynamic stability such as in thalassemia major and sickle cell anemia frequently had marked facial characteristics with broad cheekbones along with organ damage and failure, particularly of the heart, liver, beta cells of the pancreas and other tissues due to secondary hemochromatosis because of excessive iron deposition.

The clinical findings attributed to extramedullary hematopoiesis are essentially of historic interest because of the development and widespread use of proper transfusion and chelation regimens. Sickle cell disease SCD is one of the most frequent inherited genetic blood disorders in the world.

The disease was first described in the medical literature by the American physician James B. Herrick in [ 9 ].

Sickle cell disease is an autosomal-recessive disease caused by a point mutation in the hemoglobin beta gene found on chromosome 11p Significant advances in prophylactics and therapy achieved improved survival among children with sickle cell disease, with the majority of children attaining adulthood [ 10 ].

Knowledge of the natural progression of the disease, as well as identification of persons at risk, allows for timely intervention and improved outcomes. The search for biomarkers for the early diagnosis of the disorder and its outcomes is an area of intense contemporary research [ 11 ].

Our understanding of the basic science of molecular biology, oncology, genetics, and the management of several oncologic conditions made a huge evolution in the field of pediatric oncology. The previous decade was almost associated with fatal outcomes have changed a lot and replaced by an era in which most childhood cancers are cured.

This has been made possible not only because of advances in chemotherapeutic regimen but also, because of the parallel development of radiodiagnosis, radiotherapy, surgery as well as supportive care such as the pre-emptive use of antibiotics and blood product therapy.

There is greatest variation in childhood cancer incidence internationally, when comparing developed countries to developing ones.

It is estimated that childhood cancer has an incidence of more than , per year, and a mortality rate of approximately 96, per year. This may attributed to different modalities in cancer diagnosis, differences in risk factors among different ethnic population subgroups as well as differences in reporting.
