Learning Objectives:
  • Identify different morphologic variants of follicular lymphoma.
  • Compare morphologic grading and Ki-67 index in follicular lymphoma.
  • Identify and use immunohistochemical studies to support the diagnosis of in situ follicular neoplasia.
  • Identify primary cutaneous follicle center lymphoma as a distinct entity that is different from systemic follicular lymphoma.
  • Use the results of immunophenotypic analysis to identify chronic lymphocytic luekemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma and distinguish this lymphoma from other small B-cell lymphomas.
  • Use morphologic features to identify chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma and distinguish these neoplasma from other types of small B-cell lymphoma.
  • Use immunophenotypic and molecular data to classify small B-cell lymphomas inclusing mantle cell lymphoma. 
  • Identify and use immunohistochemical studies to support the diagnosis of in situ follicular neoplasia. 
  • Identify the clincial and laboratory features of Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia.
  • Identify the clinical, morphologic and immunophenotypic features of nodal marginal zone lymphoma.
  • Identify the clinical and pathologic features of extranodal marginal zone lymphoma.
  • Identify the value and limitations of finding lymphoepithelial lesions in extranodal lymphoid lesions composed of small B-cells.
