The course is divided into two parts: one theoretical (1.5h) and one seminar (2h). The former will develop the physiopathology and pathology of the different nosological entities of haematopoietic tumours defined by the World Health Organization in 2008. Myeloid tumours (chronic myeloproliferative disorders, myelodysplastic syndromes and acute leukemias) and lymphoproliferative diseases (Hodgkin and Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas) will be illustrated by slides.
The practical seminar will integrate clinical and biological notions detailed during the year but also represents an unique opportunity to analyse microscopically some frequent entities.
