Pediatric hematology refers to the study and treatment of blood diseases and blood-forming organs in the bodies of infants, children, and adolescents. Blood disorders involve problems concerning red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, blood vessels, bone marrow, or the lymph nodes. The diseases that pediatric hematologists treat may be benign (e.g., anemia), life-threatening (e.g., acute lymphoblastic leukemia), or benign with underlying life-threatening disease (e.g., anemia as the first sign of aplastic anemia). Therefore, in this specialty, it’s important to keep a broad differential, as well as to counsel patients on what symptoms should prompt an immediate return visit.
