OBJECTIVE

 

Following the success of first Course in 2017, the goal of this updated Second Annual Course is to address the most difficult diagnostic problems encountered by practicing pathologists in cutaneous and ocular melanoma.
The approach of the Course will be practical based on the extensive experience of the Director, Co-Directors, and Speakers in the Course. The Course will consist of didactic lectures and interactive sessions during the two-day period. Digitized images of specific cases will be available for review in advance of the Course and will be discussed in the interactive sessions of the Course.

Selected topics will include the general approach to the difficult melanocytic lesion, dysplastic and other atypical cutaneous melanocytic nevi, spitzoid melanocytic neoplasms, blue nevi and atypical variants, nevoid melanoma, desmoplastic melanoma, blue nevus-like melanoma, conventional cutaneous melanoma, primary acquired melanosis, pediatric melanoma, acral melanoma, mucosal melanoma, melanocytic lesions of the nail apparatus, conjunctival melanoma, uveal melanoma, the reporting of melanoma and prognostic factors, what the clinician expects from the pathologist, the assessment of margins and sentinel lymph node, AJCC guidelines 8th Edition for melanoma staging, practical immunohistochemistry and practical molecular analysis of melanocytic lesions, and immune checkpoint pathways.
