This week we had Dr. Erik Ranheim from the University of
Wisconsin visiting our department, where he gave an excellent
unknown hematopathology session with lymph nodes and
peripheral smears. This was a great educational session for all
the residents, especially the board takers. Dr. Ranheim also
presented Grand Rounds on "Pearls and Pitfalls in the Diagnostic
Workup of Small Lymph Node Biopsies".
