Learning Objectives:
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.
