Course Description

Distinguishing between reactive and neoplastic proliferations in blood, bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen and extra-nodal hematopoietic tissues, as well as accurately classifying neoplasms once they are identified, are essential for appropriate patient care.   Pathologists struggle with differentiating reactive from neoplastic conditions in these organs, as well as in properly classifying hematopoietic neoplasms once they are diagnosed.  This highly respected expert faculty will provide a unique mentoring experience in an intimate study environment at USCAP’s Interactive Learning Center.  They intend to cover diagnostic criteria for new entities in the 2016 WHO Classification of Hematopoietic and Lymphoid Neoplasms and provide useful morphologic clues and ancillary techniques to help you distinguish neoplastic and reactive conditions.

Course Objectives

      Become familiar with new and rare disease entities involving blood and
        hematopoietic tissues
      Understand the changes caused by reactive and specific infectious agents
        in hematopoietic tissues
      Understand the spectrum of Hodgkin lymphoma and its mimics
      Incorporate the clues and ancillary techniques to differentiate neoplastic from
        reactive proliferations in blood, bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen and
        extranodal hematopoietic tissues
