Course Description

The practice of pediatric pathology differs significantly from that of adult surgical pathology: certain tumor types and medical conditions are much more common in the pediatric population (e.g., celiac disease, soft tissue sarcomas); the microscopic appearances of certain diseases common to pediatric and adult populations often differ (e.g., non-necrotizing granulomas are much more common in pediatric patients with Crohn’s disease compared with adults); and molecular techniques are more commonly employed in the workup of pediatric neoplasia. This course is intended to familiarize general surgical pathologists with pediatric specimens that occur less commonly in their practices. Highly skilled pediatric pathologists will share their expertise in an intimate mentoring experience at the USCAP Interactive Center where learning is an inevitability.

      Comprehend the clinically-significant patterns of placental injury that will affect
        the fetus, neonate and potential future pregnancies
