Course Objectives

The Edinburgh Dermatopathology Tutorial is an annual course designed to provide a practical approach to different topics in Dermatopathology, delivered by extensive self study of a large and varied selection of cases using glass slides. This year’s course aims to increase awareness of the spectrum of cutaneous lymphomas, both primary and secondary, and their mimics. Attendees will be provided with individual microscopes and will be able to study ~40 selected cases in the context of their clinical histories.  Our group of internationally renowned tutors will subsequently discuss these cases. Tutors will address the clinical, morphologic, immunophenotypic and molecular characteristics of the various types of lymphoma that may present in the skin, as well as the reactive conditions that may mimic lymphoma. At the conclusion of this course participants will have enjoyed a wide range of diagnostic material, will have developed an appreciation for the clinical and pathological spectrum of lymphomas that present in the skin, and be aware of benign conditions that may resemble them. In particular, participants will have developed a confident approach to these complex diseases including recognition of more recent entities. Finally, participants will be able to confidently form differential diagnoses and apply clinical history as well as ancillary studies to reach a more definitive diagnosis. The course is suited to Pathologists with an interest in Dermatopathology and Haematopathology, as well as practising Dermatopathologists and Haematopathologists, and Dermatologists and Pathologists in training preparing for the Diploma in Dermatopathology. 

 

Approval for 15 CPD credits is currently being obtained from the Royal College of Pathologists.

 

Attendance is limited to 50 participants
