COURSE DESCRIPTION

Gynecologic pathology is a large sub-specialty area covering numerous sites, diseases and cancers. Due to the breadth of this field, many nuanced details regarding classification of disease, intra-operative consultation, newly described tests and staging of gynecologic cancer remain unknown to many surgical pathologists. Most practicing surgical pathologists see ample amounts of gynecologic surgical pathology on a routine basis including biopsy material, specimens for intra-operative consultation and cancer resections which require laboratory work-up and assessment of important staging pathologic variables. Such complexity makes it essential that some of the intricacies of this field be discussed. The aim of this course will be to discuss some of the more difficult specimens encountered within this discipline, as well as new clinical tests that have become available.  In addition, portions of the course will address chronically difficult staging issues that are commonly encountered.  The interactive format facilitates learning in an intimate mentoring environment.

  • List and describe common problems encountered in diagnosing, grading and staging endometrial adenocarcinoma
