Persistent unexplained neutrophilia raises concern for chronic myeloid neoplasms. There has been remarkable molecular cytogenetic progress in delineating neoplasms other than chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), the most well characterized myeloid neoplasm. The differential diagnosis, molecular pathology, and newer molecular markers that have diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic implications will be discussed.

This clinical pathology activity is intended for pathologists.

After completing this SAM eligible activity and posttest, you should be able to:

  1. Recognize the different malignant causes of neutrophilia.
  2. Differentiate the diagnostic criteria for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) BCR-ABL positive, atypical CML (aCML) BCR-ABL negative, chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) and chronic neutrophilic leukemia (CNL).
  3. Describe the significant morphologic features in CML, aCML, CMML, and CNL.
  4. Describe the most common molecular drivers in CML, aCML, CMML, and CNL.

CME Information
Accreditation: The College of American Pathologists (CAP) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

CME Category 1: The College of American Pathologists designates this internet enduring material educational activity for a maximum of 1.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

This activity meets the American Board of Pathology’s (ABPath) Continuing Certification (CC) requirements for Self-Assessment Modules (SAMs).

This activity meets the American Board of Pathology’s (ABPath) Continuing Certification (CC) requirements for Improvement in Medical Practice (IMP).

Continuing Professional Development (CPD), Section 3 Credit
Accreditation in Canada: This event is an Accredited Self Assessment Program (Section 3) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, approved by the Canadian Association of Pathologists - Association Canadienne des Pathologistes. You may claim a maximum of 1.25 hours equivalent to 3.75 credits.

Passing Requirements
You have a total of three opportunities to take and pass the posttest. If you correctly answer 70% or more of the posttest items, you may claim credit. CME/SAM credit can be applied to the American Board of Pathology (ABPath) Self-Assessment Module (SAM) requirements. You must pass the posttest to claim credit; therefore, if you do not pass, you cannot claim any credit.

Attention Canadian Participants: You have three opportunities to take and pass the posttest. If you do not pass the posttest after three attempts, you may still claim CPD credit (self-assessment program credits) for this activity.
