Challenging Hematopathology Case Studies

From the 2023 Joint Annual Meeting (recorded 6/29/2023)
Presented by Karen Ferreira, PhD

The classification of hematopoietic tumors relies on morphology, immunophenotype, genetic and clinical features to define the disease. This presentation will focus on each of these aspects using a case study format.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the testing algorithm involved in Hematologic neoplasms.
  • Classify the acute leukemias based on recurrent cytogenetic abnormalities.
  • Summarize the value of immunophenotyping.
