Mature T-cell and T/NK-cell neoplasms are both uncommon and heterogeneous, among the broad category of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. Due to the lack of specific genetic alterations in the vast majority of cases, most currently defined entities show overlapping morphologic and immunophenotypic features and therefore pose a challenge to the diagnostic pathologist. The goal of the symposium is to address current criteria for the recognition of specific subtypes of T-cell lymphoma, and to highlight new data regarding emerging immunophenotypic or molecular markers.
This activity has been designed to meet the needs of practicing pathologists, and residents and fellows enrolled in training programs in anatomic and clinical pathology. It should be a particular benefit to those with an interest in hematopathology.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
-To be able to state the basis for the classification of mature T-cell malignancies involving nodal and extranodal sites.
-To recognize and accurately diagnose the various subtypes of nodal and extranodal peripheral T-cell lymphomas.
-To utilize immunohistochemical and molecular tests to characterize atypical T-cell proliferations.
-To recognize and accurately diagnose T-cell lymphoproliferative lesions involving the skin and gastrointestinal tract, and be able to provide guidance regarding their clinical aggressiveness and management
-To be able to utilize flow cytometric data to identify diverse functional T-cell subsets.
