Soft Tissue Pathology Course, London 2018

Organised by DermpathPRO

5-6 July 2018



The diagnosis of soft tissue tumors can be a significant challenge (even for experienced pathologists) because of their rarity, the broad morphological spectrum of mesenchymal tumors, and overlap with other soft tissue tumors and non-mesenchymal neoplasms. The discovery of specific immunohistochemical markers and molecular genetic alterations drives the evolution of soft tissue tumor classification. If you are a surgical pathologist who struggles with accurate diagnosis of these challenging neoplasms, this is the course for you! Learn from experts in an intimate mentoring environment that simulates clinical sign out.



  • Refine skills in diagnosing a wide range of soft tissue tumors.
  • Select appropriate panels of immunohistochemical markers for soft tissue tumors.
  • Enhance interpretation of results of molecular genetic studies in the context of histology of soft tissue tumours.



This course has been approved by the Royal College of Pathologists for 14 CPD credits. Medical staff and clinical scientists in career grade posts who are enrolled with one of the Royal Colleges for CPD purposes and attend the event will be entitled to receive CPD credits.
