Course Description

Lymphomas are highly heterogeneous, consisting of numerous clinicopathologic subtypes and variants whose diagnosis and classification require integration of histologic, immunophenotypic, clinical, molecular and genomic parameters. Furthermore, there is rapid evolution of molecular prognostic factors and therapeutic markers that have clinical impact and challenge pathologists. This interactive microscopy course, supplemented by lectures, highlights the practical aspects of important changes impacting the diagnostic approach to indolent and aggressive B cell lymphomas, Hodgkin lymphoma and T cell lymphoma.

Course Objectives

      Improve ability to diagnose indolent and aggressive B cell lymphomas, Hodgkin Lymphoma
        and T cell lymphoma
      Refine skills related to the use of immunohistochemical and molecular studies to identify clinically
        relevant subtypes of indolent and aggressive B cell lymphomas and T cell lymphomas
      Enhance ability to distinguish diffuse large B cell lymphomas (DLBCLs) from
         other aggressive B cell lymphomas
      Better distinguish Hodgkin lymphoma from other B or T cell lymphomas
      Enhance capability of evaluating lymphomas for clinically relevant targeted therapy
