Saturday, October 29, 2016–Sunday, October 30, 2016
Shapiro Center - Brigham & Women's Hospital
The objective of this course, offered by the Division of Women’s and Perinatal Pathology at Brigham & Women’s Hospital, is to provide a comprehensive review of problematic areas of obstetric and gynecologic pathology. The course combines classroom lecture, high quality microscopic screen projection, discussion of challenging cases and interactive post-tests with audience participation. Topics include frequently misdiagnosed entities and strategies to recognize their diagnostic features with the goal of avoiding patient mismanagement. Early malignancy, epithelial, mesenchymal and trophoblastic neoplasia, borderline and malignant pelvic epithelial neoplasia, and use of special stains and biomarkers will be covered. The course is relevant to any pathologist or clinician interested in female genital tract pathology and the detection of gynecologic cancer.
