VM103  Practical Tips for Diagnosing Difficult Melanocytic Lesions: What We Know, What We Don’t Know, and What to Do Next

Monday, October 14
2:00–4:00 PM

Patient Care Medical Knowledge

Pigmented lesions are among the most common, problematic cases that pathologists and dermatopathologists evaluate. This video microscopy tutorial takes a practical approach to evaluating such lesions and focuses on known difficult differential diagnoses (eg, Spitzoid tumors, desmoplastic melanoma, and nevoid melanoma). Through case examples, you will learn to recognize subtle clues that may reveal cases that are more problematic than they first appear. Faculty also will discuss issues associated with the under- and overdiagnosis of melanoma and will provide examples when molecular studies, histochemical or immunoperoxidase stains, sentinel node biopsy, or other next steps can help.
