U010 - Clinically Relevant Updates in Dermatopathology: Where Are The Gaps?
Friday, March 1; 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Identify potential gaps in knowledge of clinically relevant developments in dermatopathology
- Recognize presentations of aggressive and indolent variants of cutaneous lymphoma
- Identify potential drug induced causes of inflammatory or neoplastic skin disease
Keeping up to date in dermatology is a challenge, yet it can be quite beneficial to be aware of advances in dermatopathology, such as in immunohistochemical stains and molecular techniques. Additionally, new entities or variants of established entities are often introduced in dermatopathology journals, so shared knowledge of such could result in more accurate clinical-pathologic diagnoses. In this session, potential gaps in knowledge between clinical practice and dermatopathology advances are presented. These include a variety of topics such as melanocytic neoplasms, cutaneous lymphoma, drug-induced conditions, systemic disease and adnexal neoplasms. Dermatologists and Dermatopathologists can benefit from this session.
