Gynecologic Pathology 2016
This educational activity aims to help pathologists in the approach with challenging differential diagnosis, especially in case of problematic borderline ovarian tumors, in the instance of ovarian high grade serous carcinoma and in distinguishing metastatic carcinoma from primary ovarian tumor.
At the conclusion of this activity, learners will be able:
- Identify relevant clinicopathologic features of primary mucinous neoplasms of the ovary
- Distinguish metastatic from primary carcinomas in the ovary.
- Develop an algorithm to handle serous neoplasms in the ovary, including BRCA+ cases.
- Recognize the clinicopathologic features of a group of lesions arising in the female peritoneum and identify potential pitfalls in the assessment of these lesions.
- Analyze properly ovarian high grade serous carcinoma and hereditary ovarian cancer.
- Understand the histological features to distinguish ovarian high grade serous carcinoma from low grade serous neoplasia and borderline tumors.
- Approach effectively difficult cases of endocervical adenocarcinoma and apply correctly classification criteria.
