BELOW THE BELT: Pitfalls and New Entities in Anorectal, Urologic and Gynecologic Surgical Pathology and Cytopathology 2023


 Course Description
Pathology of the lower anogenital tract, lower urinary tract, prostate, uterus, and cervix has advanced with the identification of relevant genes, better immunohistochemical markers, and the ability to readily detect human papillomavirus (HPV) using RNA in situ hybridization. New entities have recently been recognized, refinements to existing ones are possible, and new treatment, particularly immunotherapy, are available. Expert faculty will discuss newer entities and pitfalls in these areas, while also addressing diagnostic challenges in cytology and newly adopted classification schemes.


Target Audience
Practicing academic and community pathologists, and pathologists-in-training
