Traps And Pitfalls To Avoid In Urologic Pathology

September 24-26, 2019

Available Credits 15 CME, 15 SAM

Course Description

Specimens represented by prostate needle core biopsies, transurethral resection of prostate (TURP), radical prostatectomy, kidney biopsies, nephrectomy (radical or partial), bladder biopsies, cystectomy (radical or partial), cystoprostatectomy, testicular biopsies or orchiectomy are frequently handled by pathology residents/fellows, general surgical pathologists and/or urologic pathologists in academic institutions and private practices. These specimens are associated with potential diagnostic challenges and risks in day-to-day practice. This experienced faculty has selected exemplary cases from their expert consultation files (and routine in-house cases) that illustrate recurrent professional practice gaps in urologic pathology. Through intimate mentoring, you will learn how to approach them, make accurate diagnoses, and avoid traps and pitfalls that could cause diagnostic error. The course is pragmatic, clinically-oriented and stimulating.

Course Objectives

  • Recognize the most common benign mimickers of prostate cancer, identify therapy-related changes in the prostate and be aware of traps and pitfalls
  • Identify secondary tumors involving the prostate, tumors arising from the prostatic urethra, and histologic variants of prostate cancer
  • Update pathologists on newly-described entities in renal neoplasia, including guidelines for using immunohistochemistry in the work-up of renal tumors
  • Develop a systematic approach to the diagnosis of bladder lesions, primary and secondary bladder tumors, benign mimickers of malignancy and staging criteria
  • Introduce the new concepts and entities presented in the WHO 2016 Classification of Testicular Tumors including differential diagnoses, morphologic mimics and prognostic significance
