Postgraduate Course: Diagnostic Breast Pathology

Course Objectives
During the course, the participants will review 60 cases dealing with a variety of benign and malignant breast neoplasms and tumor-like lesions. Several common diagnostic problems including papillary neoplasms, intraductal proliferative lesions, variants of ductal and lobular intraepithelial neoplasias, and infiltrating carcinomas are included. On each day, 20 cases will be extensively discussed by an interactive approach. Particular attention will be paid to the diagnostic criteria with systematic analysis of differential diagnoses. Value and limitations of immunohistochemistry and molecular-genetic tools will be demonstrated and critically discussed. A comprehensive review and update of histolopathology with discussion of clinical significance of benign, intraepithelial, and malignant tumors of the breast will be provided. In addition to the case discussion, several lectures by experts in pathology, medical oncology, and surgery will be provided. After the course, the participants will have access for four weeks to review all digitized cases via internet. Prior the course, however, there is no internet access to the selected cases.

This course is designed for practicing pathologists as well as pathologists in training. Attendance is limited to 80 registrants.
