This interactive session will use an audience response system to generate discussion among the audience and a panel of expert dermatopathologists regarding current controversies and challenges in the work-up of cutaneous conditions requiring biopsy. A range of cases will be presented to illustrate the use of routine and special laboratory techniques to evaluate atypical Spitz tumors, sebaceous tumors for Muire Torre syndrome, inherited and acquired diseases of elastic tissue, lichenoid dermatoses versus lichenoid melanomas, and more. The session will benefit dermatologists, pathologists and dermatopathologists, and will feature clinicopathologic case presentations and discussion.
