Neuropathology Program (NP)

The Neuropathology Program is designed as an educational program for anatomic pathologists, neuropathologists, and trainees to assess and improve their diagnostic skills and to learn of new developments in neuropathology. Each shipment contains a CD-ROM with eight cases that cover the spectrum of neoplastic and non-neoplastic disorders affecting the central and peripheral nervous systems, including infectious, degenerative, developmental, demyelinating, traumatic, toxic-metabolic, vascular, and neuromuscular diseases. Four of the eight cases in each shipment comprise a mini-symposium focused on a specific problem area in neuropathology. The other four cases cover a variety of nervous system diseases.

For each case, pertinent clinical and laboratory information and several microscopic images are provided. Some cases also include radiographic and/or gross images. Following review of the case materials, participants answer a series of questions directed at diagnosis, interpretation, and pathophysiology. Learn more
