Haematology is the medical specialty concerned with the study of blood, the tissues that produce blood, and abnormalities, diseases, and disorders associated with blood.

This medical discipline is relatively modern because the cellular composition of blood could not be effectively studied until the invention of the microscope. The microscopic study of blood was first attempted and documented in modern detail by Leeuwenhoak (1632-1723) who identified erythrocytes. Leucocytes and thrombocytes were discovered later, after improvements in the quality of lenses.
