The number of patients treated for hematological malignancies is increasing steadily. To maximize cure rates, aggressive treatments have been introduced, including high-dose chemotherapy, stem cell transplantation, and targeted therapies. As a result, overall and disease-free survival rates have improved substantially, but at the price of life-threatening toxic and infectious complications that chiefly target the lung. This book provides clinicians caring for patients with hematological malignancies with detailed, up-to-date information on all relevant aspects of pulmonary involvement. Individual sections are devoted to epidemiology, diagnostic strategy, lung infections, non-infectious pulmonary involvement, and treatment, including decision making in patients with acute respiratory failure. Each of these sections contains a number of chapters, all written by leading international experts. In addition, the reader's attention is drawn to important "pearls" relating to each condition.

From the reviews:

"This is a detailed, multiauthored review of infectious, inflammatory, and thromboembolic complications in patients with a variety of hematological cancers. ... Practitioners with an interest in hematological malignancy and intensivists providing critical care resources for management of these patients are an appropriate audience for this work coming from an international panel of authors, the majority of whom are from France. ... This unique book effectively reviews the current therapy, incidence, and outcomes for this complex patient group." (David J. Dries, Doody's Review Service, December, 2011)
