Diagnostic Pitfalls in Urologic Pathology
Prostate needle core biopsies, transurethral resections of prostate, radical prostatectomy specimens, kidney biopsies, nephrectomy specimens, bladder biopsies, partial or total cystectomy specimens, testicular biopsies and orchiectomy specimens are frequently handled by pathology residents/fellows, general surgical pathologists and/or urologic pathologists in academic institutions and private practices. The spectrum of experience and frequency of disease entities are variable. These specimens present diagnostic challenges and risks to the pathologists who evaluate them. This course, based on pragmatic consultation cases and some routine, in-house cases is designed to reinforce accurate diagnoses, avoid diagnostic pitfalls and close existing professional practice gaps.
