AP113  The Role of Immunohistochemistry in the Evaluation of Skin Tumors

Monday, October 14
8:00–11:30 AM

CAP SAMs Medical Knowlege Practice-Based Learning and Improvement

Certain cutaneous neoplasms can be challenging to diagnose, especially when analyzing small specimens, as there is often histologic overlap among them. Given this, immunohistochemical studies are often employed to aid in diagnosis. The majority of these tumors may show specific microscopic features that are readily recognized and do not constitute a diagnostic challenge for the dermatopathologist; however, occasional cases showing atypical features can pose a significant problem for diagnosis. Learn how to accurately identify and decide an appropriate IHC panel to recognize challenging cutaneous neoplasms, including adnexal tumors, metastatic tumors, melanocytic lesions, epithelial neoplasms, etc. Following this session, participants may complete a related online self-assessment module, available at through December 31, 2013.
