General Information:

Surgical specimens from the genitourinary tract are among the most frequent in surgical pathology practice. This course is designed for pathologists who want to enhance their skills in the diagnosis of urologic diseases. You will gain insights from experienced faculty regarding the most important microscopic features for reaching an accurate diagnosis and how to utilize ancillary techniques to best advantage. Challenging areas such as the diagnosis of prostatic adenocarcinoma on limited tissue, classifying kidney tumors, recognizing the many faces of urothelial carcinoma, germ cell tumors of the testis and mimics, and the classification of penile carcinoma will be reviewed. Where appropriate the role of molecular testing will be discussed.


You will gain insights into a practical approach to applying the WHO Classification of Urological Tumors and also understanding the logic behind changes in the staging of urologic malignancies. You will hear about the evolving application of the Gleason grading system, reporting of prostate cancer containing specimens, gain confidence in diagnosing testicular germ cell tumors, learn of key issues in reporting bladder cancer specimens, and handling penile carcinoma specimens. Throughout the course practical and pragmatic approaches to the handling, including gross examination and reporting of tumor containing specimens will be stressed. Information presented in this CME course will lead to increased patient safety and patient care.
