This case-based facilitated workshop will provide participants an opportunity to discuss interesting hematologic disorders and coagulopathies that we often encounter in hematology laboratories. A variety of cases with benign and malignant hematologic disorders, and coagulopathies will be presented in this workshop. Morphologic review, an appropriate selection of screening and reflexed diagnostic confirmatory tests, principles and comprehensive interpretation will be discussed by laboratory experts.  Correct diagnosis, differential diagnosis and potential test interference in coagulation testing, particularly clot based testing, by the presence of inhibitors in the plasma will be discussed.
