Description:

 

Squamous lesions of the lower female genital tract continue to pose diagnostic problems for the surgical pathologist. This webcast focuses on unusual and/or difficult variants of squamous intraepithelial neoplasia including differentiated vulvar lesions and the diagnosis (and measurement) of superficial invasion. Using a case-based format, criteria for distinguishing clinical and pathological mimics (vulvar dystrophy, Paget’s disease, dermatoses, immature metaplasia, etc.) are presented. The indications and appropriate utilization of biomarkers (p16, Ki-67, p53) are also emphasized. Throughout the webcast, the approach to interpretation of small or suboptimal samples and other potential pitfalls is provided.

 

 

After attending this session, participants will be able to:

 

  • Diagnose and report squamous intraepithelial lesions (SIL) and distinguish them from common and not-so-common mimics.
  • Identify differentiated vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (dVIN) based on strict diagnostic criteria.
  • Utilize biomarkers in the differential diagnosis of lower genital tract squamous lesions.

 

Who should attend?  Practicing Pathologists, Residents, Gynecologists
