Pediatric Hematology Diseases

Board Review Questions of the Week
Pediatric hematology diseases include a wide range of conditions that affect red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets, as well as blood proteins related to bleeding and clotting disorders. Some of these conditions are inherited and passed down from parents who carry the abnormal (mutated) gene. Others are acquired. The unique nature of care of children or teens with blood diseases and cancer is learned from advanced training and experience in practice.Test your knowledge of Pediatric Hematology Diseases with this quick quiz question, courtesy of Med-Challenger online medical education.
