One of the biggest challenges we face in the current era of personalized medicine, is to be able provide state of the art patient care on small biopsy specimens with limited cellularity. The tutorial faculty will discuss salient morphology, pitfalls, and incorporation of ancillary studies and lay out an algorithmic approach to diagnosis with the judicious use of immunohistochemical panels and biomarker testing for prognostication and management.
