pathCast Lecture | The 2021 WHO Classification of Central Nervous System (CNS) Tumors: Update IV – Embryonal Tumors
Pathologic diagnosis of CNS tumors plays an important role in deciding management options for the patients. The most recent (2021) WHO classification has addressed many issues in redefining diagnostic criteria, and molecular signatures of these tumors. This is going to have a significant impact on patient outcome. Diagnosis of CNS tumors is a challenge for the pathologists. The recent updates require molecular methods for correct diagnosis and classification. Ideal practice requires incorporation of molecular data and new guidelines. The purpose of this lecture is for participants to examine the recent changes in diagnostic criteria of CNS tumors and understand the recent updates in the WHO classification of CNS embryonal tumors.
City of Hope pathologists, neurosurgeons, oncologists, pathology fellows, and researchers.
- Correctly diagnose and classify central nervous system (CNS) tumors.
- Utilize this knowledge to participate in a multidisciplinary approach to the management of CNS embryonal tumors.
- Utilize this knowledge for future research.
- Discuss possible barriers and biases which may impact patient care (i.e., race, ethnicity, language, gender identity/orientation, age, socioeconomic status, attitudes, feelings, or other characteristics).
