USCAP Modern Approaches to Classification of Hematolymphoid Neoplasms 2022



Accurate diagnosis in hematopathology relies heavily on the complex integration of data from clinical presentation, conventional microscopy, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, and molecular and cytogenetic analyses. Diagnosis is often complicated by the fact that clinically relevant disease subsets can share overlapping diagnostic features, and both baseline appreciation for disease spectrum and appropriate application/interpretation of ancillary testing is lacking. This gap can lead to real and immediate clinical consequences for therapeutic selection and overall patient management.

While in-house testing for the vast array of available diagnostic, prognostic and predictive markers is not possible in every setting or practice, awareness of their applicability and impact on patient care is the responsibility of both the pathologist and treating clinician. This is particularly true in an era when patients are increasingly knowledgeable about genomic and proteomic analyses and the studies are easily accessible. Approaching this target by strengthening baseline knowledge and skill in application empowers the pathologist as a consultant to the clinical care team.
