Hematology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the study of blood, the blood-forming organs and blood diseases. Hematology is a sub-specialty of internal medicine, separate from, but often overlapping with the sub-specialty of medical oncology.
A hematologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and study of blood diseases.
Conditions commonly treated by hematologists include:
Aplastic anemia, sickle cell disease, thalassemia, vitamin B12 deficiency
Bone Marrow Transplantation
HIV / AIDS, malaria
Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP)
Infectious Diseases, Immunodeficiency Syndromes and Auto-immune Diseases
Neutropenia (Low White Blood Cell Count)
Thrombosis (Blood Clotting Disorders)
