NEW  AP111  Inflammatory Disorders of the Gastrointestinal Tract: Similarities and Differences Between Adult and Pediatric Disease

Monday, October 14
8:00–11:30 AM

Medical Knowlege Patient Care

While the pathologic features of inflammatory diseases of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract in adults and children are generally similar, there are important differences in the histologic appearances, differential diagnoses, and clinical presentations that may present diagnostic challenges. Designed for practicing pathologists and trainees involved in the interpretation of gastrointestinal biopsies, this course will provide an in-depth review of several inflammatory diseases of the GI tract that show variability between the adult and pediatric populations. While the chief emphasis will be on the pathologic features, relevant clinical characteristics will also be covered. Additionally, the course will provide case presentations and cover diseases such as idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease, eosinophilic diseases of the esophagus (gastroesophageal reflux disease/allergic/eosinophilic esophagitis), celiac disease, and diarrheal illnesses. The syllabus will include a description of relevant diagnostic features, a discussion of the differential diagnosis, a comprehensive reference list, and representative microscopic images.
