Don't miss the upcoming ISLH October Webinar!
On Thursday, October 19th, 2023 the International Society for Laboratory Hematology will host the next webinar in the e-Learning series: "Morphology of Myeloproliferative Neoplasm".
The webinar will be held by Wendy Erber, MD Haematologist-The University of Western Australia and PathWest Laboratory Medicine WA, Australia.
Overview: The myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) are a group of clonal stem cell disorders with similarities at the phenotypic and molecular level. Clinically, they are characterised by over-production of one or more mature myeloid elements and a variable tendency to develop acute myeloid leukaemia (AML).
Polycythaemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythaemia (ET) and primary myelofibrosis (PMF) overlap clinically and share a tendency to undergo phenotypic shift, such that patients with ET may develop PV, and ET or PV may undergo myelofibrotic transformation. In this presentation the morphology of PV, ET and PMF will be described.
- Understand the distinct morphological features of essential thrombocythaemia, polycthaemia vera and myelofibrosis
- Understand features that can assist in distinguishing these neoplasms from reactive conditions
- Understand the phenotype - genotype correlations for disease classification
- Have knowledge of the effects of treatment and progressive nature on the morphology
All webinars will begin promptly at 11:00 AM Eastern Time US and are approximately 50 minutes long. There is no charge to participate in the live webinar.
We look forward to your participation in this event!
