    “Mark Marinella’s book covers how to recognize, diagnose, and treat a broad range of acute illnesses that occur in cancer patients. The contents reflect his extensive knowledge and expertise working in both the fields of hospital medicine and hematology/oncology. This text should be very useful for all clinical members on the cancer care team, both cancer specialists and non-specialists alike, for the ultimate benefit of cancer patients and their families.”
