  • Update on the diagnosis and therapy of vascular tumors including infantile hemangiomas
  • Review of the Eighth edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC 8) guidelines for the classification of melanoma
  • Sentinel lymph node biopsy and completion lymphadenectomy for melanoma: Where are we now?
  • Review of current therapy for melanoma, including targeted therapies against receptors, genes or other specific proteins

GENERAL INFORMATION:

Nowhere else will you have such an opportunity to benefit from the knowledge of a faculty with a combined experience of one million skin biopsy interpretations! You’ll increase your confidence in approaching pigmented lesions, nonmelanoma skin cancer, and inflammatory dermatoses. And you’ll be better able to provide clinicians with the critical information needed to address patient problems.

 

You’ll start with an overview of problematic melanocytic and nonmelanocytic neoplasms and benefit from tips for avoiding errors in interpretation and reporting. You’ll gain new understanding of mechanisms and patterns of inflammatory lesions of the skin and inflammatory dermatoses. You’ll participate in a discussion of a general clinical approach to inflammatory and neoplastic skin disease and the issues of orientation of Mohs surgical specimens, always problematic to dermatopathologists and general anatomic pathologists. And you’ll stay on the cutting edge with new information about medicolegal implications of diagnosis and misdiagnosis, anti-melanoma vaccination, targeted molecular therapy of melanoma, direct immunoflurescence microscopy, and much, much more! Bring your challenging slides for discussion with the faculty and evaluate your knowledge with self-assessment options.
