Course Description

The diagnosis of soft tissue tumors can be a significant challenge (even for experienced pathologists) because of their rarity, the broad morphological spectrum of mesenchymal tumors, and overlap with other soft tissue tumors and non-mesenchymal neoplasms. The classification of soft tissue tumors continues to evolve, following the description of “new” tumor types, the discovery of novel molecular genetic alterations, and the development of increasingly specific diagnostic immunohistochemical markers. If your specialty interest is in soft tissue pathology, or if your practice requires enhanced competency in evaluating soft tissue lesions, this course is designed to familiarize you with recently-described soft tissue tumors and recently-developed diagnostic markers.

Course Objectives

      Develop a differential diagnosis for soft tissue tumors
        based on dominant histologic patterns and anatomic sites
      Apply immunohistochemistry to help resolve the differential diagnosis
      Understand the role of molecular genetic testing for the diagnosis of soft tissue tumors
