Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The World Health Organization (WHO)’s medical advances contribute to updating the famous WHO Blue Books, a series of 15 books that classify up to 300 tumor histotypes according to their definition, code, synonyms, epidemiology, localization, clinical features, etiology, macroscopy, microscopy, cytochemistry, immunophenotype, ultrastructure, genetics, prognostic factors, and predictive factors. Among these tumors, there are undoubtably those belonging to the hematopoietic and lymphoid tissues, which constitute the pathological basis of modern oncohematology. In 2022, the WHO Blue Book of hematolymphoid neoplasms has undergone a significant revision by an editorial board that was mostly composed of histopathologists and molecular pathologists, which was inserted in the fifth edition of the WHO classification for hematolymphoid tumors. The main purpose of this Special Issue is to focus, on a molecular level, on research on all these blood tumors.
