AP120  Recognizing the High-Risk “Benign” Endometrial Biopsy

Tuesday, October 15
8:00–11:30 AM

Medical Knowledge Patient Care

Nonmalignant endometrial biopsies and curettages, frequent components of any busy surgical pathology practice, often present difficult diagnostic challenges due to artifact and morphologic variation among individual entities. This course will present practical approaches to resolve commonly encountered diagnostic thresholds with immediate clinical management implications. Topics will include metaplasias (benign or high risk); hyperplasias (hormonal effect or precancerous); things you can miss if you do not think of them; useful special studies; and hints for managing the indeterminate case. This course will pay special attention to sampling problems in a fragmented specimen format, the modifying effects of hormonal environment on interpretation, and those diagnostic thresholds that correspond to clinical management decisions.
