Overview:

This annual course addresses a wide range of topics in anatomic pathology and explores new and evolving areas in the diagnosis and analysis of disease. It aims to provide the latest practical and theoretical information that will aid the practicing pathologist in solving those problems most often encountered in the anatomic pathology laboratory.

An audience response system will facilitate questions and discussion. A complete course syllabus will be provided for all participants. Participants will be able to register for either the entire three day meeting or for any combination of individual one day blocks.

Objectives:

The principal objective of this activity is to identify areas of diagnostic difficulties and challenges in everyday surgical pathology and cytopathology practice, and to provide expert insight on selected topics through different educational formats. Educational experience is further enhanced through a collegial contact and one-on-one interaction throughout the course. The topics selected each year reflect areas in which substantial information and progress has been made (as identified through recent publications and other data gathering efforts). The topics of discussion also focus on areas in which there is significant difficulty in interpretation of pathological features. In general terms, we expect that at the end of this course, the participants will be able to:

  • diagnose lower anogenital squamous lesions, uterine sarcomas, mesenchymal tumors of the liver, infectious colitides, carcinoma involving the skin, and cutaneous lymphomas;
  • classify, diagnose and select the appropriate differential diagnosis for endocervical and endometrial adenocarcinomas, interstitial lung disease, hepatic granulomas, and Barrett's mucosa;
  • recognize mixed epithelial mesenchymal tumors of the uterus;
  • interpret precursor lesions of endometrioid adenocarcinoma of the endometrium;
  • understand and apply the usage of molecular markers of primary central nervous system lesions;
  • avoid common errors in the evaluation and diagnosis of gynecologic frozen sections;
  • recognize and understand diagnostic challenges in non-alcoholic steatohepatitis;
  • consider when it may be helpful to apply new ancillary techniques in the diagnosis of soft tissue tumors;
  • use criteria shared in the course for diagnosis and classification of multiple types of tumors and lesions.
