Dermatopathology Made Simple
Tuesday, March 25
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Christine Ko, MD, FAAD - Handout
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Develop an aptitude for honing in on diagnostic findings at low power.
- Formulate a differential diagnosis from the initial view of a specimen.
- Predict and recognize evidence at higher power that narrows the differential.
This session is aimed at residents in training. A quick overview of over 150 different entities in dermatopathology is reviewed, using the low-power impression of a slide as the starting point. From the initial gestalt, features at higher magnification that can lead to the correct diagnosis are emphasized.
