32 PLENARY PROGRAM (cont.) Short Course II Mind the Gap! Niche Dermatopathology of Special Sites and Special Situations Friday, October 11 8:00 a.m. Noon Thurgood Marshall Ballroom, Mezzanine Level Course Director: Beth S. Ruben, MD University of California, San Francisco 3.5 Category 1 CME Credits TM Within the broad realm of diagnostic dermatopathology, there are certain areas in which we find ourselves slightly outside our comfort zone. Many of these practice gaps develop due to a lack of sufficient exposure to such cases, either during our training or in daily practice, and/or due to the rapid accumulation of knowledge and technical advances in such niche areas. Some of these subspecialties may fall under the purview of hospital-based or academic pathologists, making them even more inaccessible to outpatient dermatopathologists. Mucosal pathology, including ophthalmic, oral and genital, comprises one segment of this murky territory. The nail unit remains another special site, fraught with technical and diagnostic difficulty. Pediatric dermatopathology is also emerging as a newer niche, as knowledge advances rapidly in pediatric dermatology and we are called upon to help in special diagnostic situations. Progress in the molecular diagnosis of soft tissue tumors is revolutionizing the diagnosis and classification of those difficult neoplasms. This session will explore important entities, diagnostic dilemmas and technical advances in these categories, with the purpose of narrowing this gap and improving outcomes for patients.

40 PLENARY PROGRAM (cont.) 2013 Elson B. Helwig Memorial Lecture Saturday, October 12 1:45 p.m. 2:45 p.m. Thurgood Marshall Ballroom, Mezzanine Level 1 Category 1 CME Credits TM This clinically oriented lecture began in October 1998 as the Special Guest Lecture. On July 31, 2000, the Special Guest Lecture was officially named the Elston B. Helwig Memorial Lecture in tribute of Dr. Helwig. The lectureship is awarded in recognition of excellence in the realm of diagnostic dermatopathology and for significant contribution to the dermatopathology literature and the education of fellows and colleagues. Luis Requena, MD, PhD Chair, Fundación Jiménez Díaz Professor, Universidad Autónoma Madrid, Spain Insights in Cutaneous Neoplasms Dr. Elson Helwig originally described many of the cutaneous adnexal neoplasms, both benign and malignant ones. In recent years, advances in immunohistochemistry and molecular biology have contributed to a better understanding in differentiation of some of these neoplasms. Furthermore, multiple cutaneous adnexal tumors, often with hereditary transmission, frequently appear in patients with systemic diseases and are often associated with internal malignant neoplasms. In most of these diseases, the genetic defect has been identified and it may be investigated in the cutaneous lesions. Along with the diagnosis, genetic counseling should be provided to the patient and the family. Dr. Requena will review the most recent insights of some cutaneous adnexal neoplasms and their consequences in the clinical practice Visit for a list of previous Elson B. Helwig Memorial Lecturers. 40 Meeting Program

You must drop off your de-identified glass slides and corresponding de-identified reports for 10 cases that you signed out before 10 a.m., Friday, October 11, at the ASDP Registration Desk, in order to participate. During the two-hour session, each participant will be given 10 de-identified slides and corresponding reports of another participant and will independently review each case at a provided microscope. Participants will complete a feedback form about slide quality, accuracy and report quality. The feedback forms will be collected and re-distributed to the original participant during the session. Based on review of these feedback forms, the original participant will complete a short form describing what they have learned from peer review, what areas they may want to improve and how they plan to implement improvements. Participants will earn five CME credit hours for completing the blinded slide and report review, and five CME credit hours for describing what they learned and their plan for implementing changes. Ten CME credit hours will be earned by participating in the follow-up survey, which participants will receive approximately six months after completion of the Quality and Performance Improvement Program at the annual meeting. CME Certificates will be issued only to program participants who complete both phases of the program (at the annual meeting and follow-up survey). Certificates will be available to print immediately upon completion of the follow-up survey. Optional Courses & Events 59
