This two-day interactive course will address key updates in breast, gynecologic, soft tissue and gastrointestinal pathology. A stepwise approach to pathology diagnosis in these subspecialty topic areas in surgical pathology and cytopathology will be addressed. The course will also provide guidance in the use and interpretation of molecular and immunohistochemical testing in difficult diagnostic scenarios.
Specific topics that will be covered include: Breast neoplastic lesions, ovarian neoplasms, endocervical cancers, soft tissue tumors, appendiceal neoplasms, 2020 gastrointestinal WHO updates, gastrointestinal polyps, dysplasia in Barrett's esophagus, and prostate/urologic biopsy pitfalls.
At the completion of this course, participants should be able to:
• Develop a methodical approach to common morphologic patterns in soft tissue tumors including lipomatous neoplasms
• Recognize the range of morphologic variants of breast papillary lesions and less aggressive breast neoplasms
• Diagnose chronic colitis, idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease and mimics in biopsy material
• Examine etiologies of esophageal injury and complexities of evaluation of Barrett’s related dysplasia
• Review Updates in the 2020 WHO tumors of the digestive system, including appendiceal mucinous lesions
• Discuss classification of ovarian sex cord stromal tumors, endocervical adenocarcinoma and mimics
• Incorporate use of ancillary diagnostic techniques including immunohistochemistry and molecular testing
