USCAP Challenges in Hematopathology 2022


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 and will 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.

Target Audience
Practicing academic and community pathologists, and pathologists-in-training
Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this educational activity, learners will be able to:
– 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
