Independent Study with an Expert: WHO’s in Bone

Original release date:
December 3, 2020
Access to this course expires on: June 3, 2021 at 11:59 PM Pacific Time
CME 1.25

Course Description
The fifth edition of the World Health Organization Classification of Tumors of Soft Tissue and Bone was published in early 2020. The revisions reflect a consensus among an international expert editorial board composed of bone and soft tissue pathologists, molecular pathologists, a medical oncologist, surgeons, and radiologists. The changes in the bone chapter notably include reclassification of some tumors, deleted entities, and the inclusion of new entities. This lecture will discuss the significant changes and explain in some detail the concept of atypical cartilaginous tumor, which has caused some confusion since first introduced.

Target Audience
Practicing academic and community pathologists, and pathologists-in-training

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this educational activity, learners will be able to:
  • Be aware of the current changes in the WHO classification of bone tumors.
