COURSE DESCRIPTION

The practice of pediatric pathology differs significantly from that of adult surgical pathology: certain tumor types and medical conditions are much more common in the pediatric population (e.g., celiac disease, soft tissue sarcomas); the microscopic appearances of certain diseases common to pediatric and adult populations often differ (e.g., non-necrotizing granulomas are much more common in pediatric patients with Crohn’s disease compared with adults); and molecular techniques are more commonly employed in the workup of pediatric neoplasia. This course is intended to familiarize general surgical pathologists with pediatric specimens that occur less commonly in their practices. Highly skilled pediatric pathologists will share their expertise in an intimate mentoring experience at the USCAP Interactive Center where learning is an inevitability.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Become familiar with common solid tumors that occur in the pediatric population
  • Recognize differences between adult and pediatric medical diseases of the gastrointestinal tract
  • Understand the approach to the pathologic analysis of tumors of the central nervous system, lymph nodes and bone marrow that occur in pediatrics
  • Learn about the contribution of molecular pathology to the proper diagnosis of solid tumors, tumors of the central nervous system, lymph nodes and bone marrow
  • Comprehend the clinically-significant patterns of placental injury that will affect the fetus, neonate and potential future pregnancies
