Description:

Variable interobserver concordance has plagued anal cytology, especially in relation to high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions and squamous cell carcinoma, indicating a need for continuing education in this growing discipline. This webcast is aimed at improving the overall understanding of anal cytology, with a focus on diagnostic and adequacy criteria, common pitfalls, and nonneoplastic findings common to this specimen type. Cytologic-histologic correlation in this anatomic site and the appropriate use of ancillary studies in this setting will also be reviewed.
