Access to this course expires on: April 8, 2020
CME/SAMs 1.25

Faculty: Daniel A. Arber, M.D.

Narrative Description:
This session reviews a wide variety of hematopoietic proliferations that may come across the scope of any practicing hematopathologist. This includes cases of lymphoblastic leukemia and myeloid neoplasms as well as vascular splenic and unusual responses to viruses in hematopoietic tissues.

Topics Covered:
  • Diagnostic evaluation of eosinophilia
  • Bone marrow manifestations of viral infections
  • The diagnosis of neoplasms with plasmablastic morphologic features
  • Unusual splenic proliferations

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the assays most useful for the evaluation of neoplastic eosinophilic disorders
  • Understand the use of different viral assays to classify disorders with plasmablastic features
  • Recognize disease infiltration patterns that are unique to the spleen
  • Understand genetic aberrations reflective of a variety of hematopoietic proliferative and neoplastic conditions.
To earn CME and SAM credit, all learners must take a content-based exam and achieve a minimum score of 80%. If learners do not achieve a passing score of 80%, they have the option to retake the exam. After you pass the test and complete the evaluation, your certificate of completion will be available to view and print by clicking here.
