Target Audience
This CME activity is primarily intended and designed to educate pathologists.

Educational Objectives
At the completion of this CME teaching activity, you should be able to:
  • Differentiate benign breast disease and atypical proliferative lesions.
  • Discuss liver biopsies in the post-HCV era.
  • Achieve a better understanding of HER in GI malignancies and comparisons to breast.
  • Prepare for colon cancer and universal screening for Lynch syndrome.
  • Identify conditions to consider before surgical pathology subspecialty sign-out.
  • Discuss breast cancer predictive factor testing (ER, PR & HER2).
  • Analyze myxoid soft tissue tumors and peripheral nerve sheath tumors.
  • Identify key features of genomic testing in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment planning.
  • Describe sclerosing lesions of the breast.
  • Discuss the utility of cytogenetic and FISH studies in workup of adipocytic lesions.
  • Review differential diagnoses and pitfalls in fatty tumors.
  • Review the appropriate use (and potential pitfalls) of MDM2 FISH studies in the work-up of a spindle cell malignancy in the retroperitoneum.
  • Discuss bone-forming and cartilage-forming soft tissue tumors, as well as sarcomas that may occasionally produce matrix.
  • Discuss the differential diagnosis of a spindle cell sarcoma with herringbone/fascicular growth.
  • Discuss peripheral nerve sheath tumors, fibrohistiocytic neoplasms and vascular lesions.
  • Review new entities such as soft tissue angiofibroma and biphenotypic sinonasal sarcoma.
  • Review entities such as fibroepithelial stromal polyp, cellular angiofibroma, mammary-type myofibroblastoma, angiomyofibroblastoma and aggressive angiomyxoma, as well as their mimics.
