Hematopathology or hemopathology is the branch of pathology which studies diseases of hematopoietic cells. Blood malignancies are forms of cancer that begins in the cells of blood-forming tissue, such as the bone marrow, or in the cells of the immune system. Examples of hematologic cancer are acute and chronic leukaemia, lymphomas, multiple myeloma and myelodysplastic syndromes. Hematopathology deals in differentiation and diagnosing Myeloproliferative neoplasms, or MPNs, are hematologic cancers that arise from malignant hematopoietic myeloid progenitor cells in the bone marrow, such as the precursor cells of red cells, platelets and granulocytes.
