2014 Diagnostic Breast Pathology: An Update On Selected Topics

Florence, FI IT
May 27, 2014 to May 29, 2014

“Diagnostic Breast Pathology” has been planned to provide pathologists with a practical approach to the diagnosis and management of challenging but common breast lesions.

Emphasis will be placed on difficult differential diagnoses with major clinical implications, such as columnar cell lesions, papillary lesions, variants of lobular carcinoma, triple negative carcinoma and special subtypes of breast carcinoma as tubular, mucinous and micropapillary.

The course will also provide pathologists with an update on breast core needle biopsy procedures and interpretation, addressing areas of recurrent diagnostic difficulty and related clinical implications. Cases that illustrate diagnostic challenges and management issues on core biopsy material will be selected for discussion. The value and limitations of immunohistochemistry as an ancillary testing in Diagnostic Brest Pathology will be discussed.

An update on sentinel lymph node and its implication in prognosis of breast cancer will be also discussed.
