59th Annual Spring Symposium -- Self-Assessment Module Credit (SAM)

This activity also incorporates the Self-Assessment Modules (SAMs) credits required by the American Board of Pathology’s Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program. Physicians may claim up to 7 SAM credits for this activity. Claimed credit should commensurate with the extent of participation in the activity.

21) Which of the following is true of melanocytic lesions? *
22) Which of the following statements is most correct in regarding the melanoma FISH test result shown above? *
23) An 8-month old female infant presents with a mass on the posterior neck. The lesion was seen in the fetus at 23 weeks gestation on MRI, and was fully present at birth. The mass has rapidly become smaller since birth. The lesion was biopsied. Histologic examination of the lesion shows a vascular proliferation present in the dermis and extending into the subcutis. The lesion is composed of multiple vascular lobules with hobnail endothelial cells, prominent dilated veins in the lobules and surrounded by fibrous tissue. Thrombi are present.  Which is the correct diagnosis? *
24) A 3-month old baby girl presents with a large red mass covering almost the entire left side of the face. The lesion was present at birth and has gradually enlarged over time. Blood work is notable for severe coagulopathy with elevated fibrin degradation products. The lesion was resected and showed a dermal nodular prolifereation with lobular, vascular and spindled cell areas. The tumor cells are infiltrative and consists of fascicles of slit-like vascular spaces with spindled cells. Other areas have epithelioid endothelial cells. The lesion is negative for Glut1. What is the correct diagnosis? *
25) Studies have shown that in general, physicians have: *
26) Vaughan v. Menlove, 132 Eng. Rep. 490 (C.P.) 1837 *
27) The medical malpractice lawsuit timeline includes all of the following except: *
28) The devastating impact of a medical malpractice lawsuit upon a physician may exhibit itself as all of the following except: *
29) A "bump" on the hand shows a glandular neoplasm with papillary infoldings. Significant atypia is not appreciated. The tumor is present at the tissue edge. Which of the following is correct: *
30) A plaque on the face shows both keratocysts and glands filled with secretions. Slender cords of cells are seen in the lower portion of the biopsy. Significant atypia is not appreciated. The lesion is present broadly at the deep tissue edge of the biopsy. Which of the following is correct: *
31) Regarding myeloid leukemia cutis: *
32) Blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm: *
