What is haematology?

HaematologyHaematology studies the blood and its disorders, especially various forms of anaemia, sickle cell disease, haemophilia, the complications of blood transfusion, and malignant diseases of the blood cells.

Some of the disorders treated by haematologists are:

  • Anemias (iron deficiency, sickle cell anemia, trauma-related)
  • Myelofibrosis
  • Leukaemia
  • Platelet and bleeding disorders, such as haemophilia, Von Willebrand disease
  • Thalassemia
  • Multiple myeloma

Common treatments and tests

These tests are mainly used to help diagnose and assess various blood disorders. The tests may be done to find the reason for:

  • A low/high number of red blood cells (anaemia)
  • A low/high number of white blood cells (leukopenia)
  • A low/high number of platelets (thrombocytopenia) in the blood.

Conditions such as various types of leukaemia and various other types of blood disorders can cause these blood abnormalities. The tests may also be done to:

  • Monitor the response of treatment for leukaemia
  • Determine how far certain lymphomas or cancers have progressed
