ABSTRACT
Chapter 2 of the book "Hematology in Practice" is presented. It defines the components of hematopoiesis and describes the organs used for hematopoiesis throughout fetal and adult life. The origin of cell development is discussed, as well as the functions of the spleen and the potential risks for splenectomy. It also explains the morphological classification of the anemias and the value of the red cell distribution width.
