HEMATOLOGY [Greek: haima, blood + logos, study] Science of blood founded by Paul Ehrlich (18541915) of Germany, who made great contributions to the field with his staining methods. He used aniline dyes to stain white blood cells in 1877, and introduced the method of differential blood cell count in 1879. He identified reticulocytes in 1881 and gave a description of aplastic anemia in 1888. Ehrlich also differentiated between lymphocytic and myelogenous leukemia in 1891. The method of enumerating red blood cells was devised by Karl Vierdort (18181884) in 1852. The discovery of blood platelets was made by Alfred Donné (18011878) in 1842. Others who gave a description of blood platelets include Georges Hayem (18411930) and Sir William Osler (18491919). An early comprehensive review of hematology during the 19th century was given by Rud Limbeck of Vienna in his work Clinical Pathology of Blood published in 1901. The polymorphs were differentiated into five different groups according to their nuclear configuration by German physician, Joseph Arneth (18731955) in 1904. Sternal needle puncture for study of bone marrow was first described by Carly Paul Seyfarth (b 1890) of Germany in 1923. The use of needle puncture in hemopoietic diseases was popularized by Mikhail J. Arinkin (18761948) of Germany in 1927. A classification of anemias based on red cell morphology was proposed by Canadian physician, Maxwell Myer Wintrobe (b 1901) in 1930. His classification proposed four groups of anemias: macrocytic, normocytic, simple microcytic, and chronic microcytic. With the discovery of ABO blood groups by Karl Landsteiner (18681943) in 1900, blood transfusion became one of the important fields in hematology.
