Soft Tissue Mass in a Young Adult
Case Studies provide an interactive distance-learning experience to interesting cases in the field of cytopathology. Each Case includes objectives, images, a clinical history, along with a multiple-choice diagnosis followed by discussion, review images and references.
This educational activity is designed for pathologists, fellows/residents, cytotechnologists, and student cytotechnolgists.
- Recognize and identify the cytological features of small round blue cell lesions giving rise to a soft tissue mass.
- Understand the ancillary studies that can help in making a specific and accurate diagnosis when encountering an FNA with a small round blue cell tumor.
- Develop a practical differential diagnosis for a small round blue cell tumor, incorporating age, location and pathological findings.
