Knowledge Gaps in the Diagnosis of Skin Lymphoma
Saturday, March 02
7:15 AM - 8:45 AM
Antonio Subtil, MD
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Identify knowledge gaps in the diagnosis of cutaneous lymphomas.
- Recognize critical sources of miscommunication among dermatologists, dermatopathologists, hematopathologists and oncologists.
- Reconcile conflicting clinical, histopathologic and/or molecular findings.
Careful correlation of clinical and pathologic findings is necessary for proper diagnosis of cutaneous lymphomas. This challenging process is complicated by the heterogeneity of lymphomas and the complexity of diagnostic criteria and classification schemes. Accurate diagnosis of skin lymphoma depends upon appropriate data integration and adequate communication among several physicians that contribute different pieces of the diagnostic puzzle. Dermatologists, dermatopathologists, hematopathologists, and oncologists all have knowledge gaps in this process.
This session is directed to dermatologists, pathologists and residents and will provide an organized overview of important knowledge gaps among the different specialists involved in the diagnosis of cutaneous lymphomas.
