3.0 CME CREDITS
Certain cutaneous neoplasms are challenging to diagnose, especially when analyzing small specimens, as there is often histologic overlap among them. Pathologists often employ immunohistochemical (IHC) studies to aid in diagnosis. And while the majority of cutaneous tumors show specific microscopic features that are readily recognized and do not constitute a diagnostic challenge for the dermatopathologist, occasional cases showing atypical features can pose a significant problem for diagnosis. For such cases, IHC studies may be employed to aid in the diagnosis. This course will help participants to accurately identify and decide an appropriate IHC panel to analyze challenging cutaneous neoplasms, primarily melanocytic lesions, adnexal tumors, primary versus metastatic lesions, fibrohistiocytic lesions, etc.
