During the course, the participants will review a total of 200 cases of benign and malignant cutaneous tumors including 50 cases each of melanocytic, vascular, adnexal and lymphoproliferative neoplasms, respectively. Several common diagnostic problems concerning variants of melanoma and melanocytic nevi, high- and low-grade cutaneous vascular tumors and their simulators, cutaneous follicular, apocrine, eccrine and sebaceous neoplasms and cutaneous lymphomas and pseudolymphomas are included.
On each day, at least 10 cases of each diagnostic group will be extensively discussed by an interactive approach. Particular attention will be paid to the diagnostic criteria with systematic analysis of differential diagnoses, as well as value and limitations of immunohistochemistry and molecular genetic tools. A comprehensive review and update of relevant literature will be provided. The discussion of the most interesting cases will be integrated into a more general diagnostic approach to these problematic cutaneous neoplasms.
