Overview

DESCRIPTION
In daily practice, pathologists must confront ever changing classifications of neoplasms and newer treatments that are based on molecular mechanisms of diseases. Areas in which the field of medicine is changing revolve around, soft tissue tumors in general and gastrointestinal stromal tumors in specific, the new classification of hematopoietic neoplasms, the new classification of head and neck tumors, the complex story of renal neoplasms, and criteria for diagnosis of thyroid tumors, which have all been updated in the past few years. There are also some areas that result in perpetual difficulty, namely diagnosis of melanomas, urothelial lesions, common central nervous system tumors, and hepatic neoplasms. Lastly, classification of colorectal polyps and neoplasms will be addressed, an area of pathology that has drastically changed in the past decade. Drawing on the expertise of past, present, and future Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP)/American Registry of Pathology (ARP) fascicle authors in partnership with Johns Hopkins Pathology, these topics and others of interest to general pathologists will be presented. This weekend update should be of interest to general surgical pathologists and pathology residents and fellows.
