The Times they are A-Changin’: What’s on the Horizon for the WHO Classification of Hematopoietic and Lymphoid Tumors

Educational Objective

The 2008 WHO classification of tumors of haematopoietic and lymphoid tissues forms the basis for the practice of diagnostic neoplastic hematopathology. It is currently undergoing a major update and therefore it is important that those making neoplastic hematopathologic diagnoses know about the expected changes and related new knowledge generated since 2008. This activity is intended to meet the educational needs of practicing surgical pathologists as well as hematopathologists, including those in training. Part I: Myeloid Neoplasms and Other Acute Leukemias Moderator- Daniel A. Arber, MD Part II: Mature Lymphoid Neoplasms Moderator- Steven H. Swerdlow, MD Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Know the process by which the 2008 WHO classification of tumors of haematopoietic and lymphoid tissues is being updated.
  • Describe the impact of discoveries related to phenotypic, molecular and cytogenetic studies over the last 7 years on the understanding and classification of myeloid and lymphoid neoplasms.
  • List major changes expected in the updated WHO classification of tumors of haematopoietic and lymphoid tissues.
