Description: The objective of Dermpedia Courses is to provide the most comprehensive in-depth updates on selected topics pertinent to everyday practice of skin pathology and dermatology. Two days of the Course will be devoted to a Comprehensive Review of Soft Tissue Tumors. In this module we will discuss entities and critical differential diagnoses likely to be encountered by general pathologists and dermatopathologists. The Course Faculty, all recognized experts in the field, will present interesting cases illustrating salient features and potential diagnostic pitfalls associated with common and less common soft tissue tumors. The third day of the Course will be an Update on Melanoma and Melanocytic Proliferations. This 7 hour module, offered as a separate registration, will provide a practical update on diagnosis, classification and management of melanocytic lesions. This module is intended for a broader audience also including dermatologists and nurse practitioners utilizing skin biopsy in their practice. The Course participants are expected to learn about the importance of clinicopathological correlation in management of pigmented lesions and emerging molecular technologies, markers and treatments of melanoma. A significant amount of time will be devoted to discussing the most common diagnostic problems facing dermatopathologists and pathologists in routine practice. Participants will be encouraged to submit their own cases for discussion on Dermpedia website. The Course will also include optional small group sessions at a multiheaded microscope.
