AP134  Nonneoplastic Diseases of the Genitourinary Tract: Benign Lesions Matter Too

Wednesday, October 16
1:00–3:00 PM

Medical Knowledge Patient Care

Nonneoplastic diseases of the genitourinary tract are common, and it is critical that practicing surgical pathologists are aware of these entities. Various nonneoplastic processes such as papillary, urothelial, glandular, squamous, spindle cell, or inflammatory lesions may mimic or compound an evaluation of bladder or prostate malignancy, including the assessment of key pathologic variables in transurethral and whole resection specimens. The course will review common nonneoplastic entities, their pathologic features, immunohistochemical profiles, and diagnostic pitfalls. Recognition of all of these nonneoplastic diseases can lead to improved patient outcomes. The assessment of the nonneoplastic kidney is required in the CAP cancer protocols for reporting on cancers of the kidney, renal pelvis, and ureter. This pathologic parameter is the most important feature when diagnosing benign renal neoplasms and T1 tumors.
