The Milan System and Other Aspects of Salivary Gland Cytology

Boston, Massachusetts

Salivary gland cytology represents one of the most challenging areas of cytopathology due to the diverse array of both benign and malignant tumors, many with overlapping microscopic features. This session will familiarize the audience with key cytologic features of many of the more common as well as challenging salivary gland tumors. An emphasis will be placed on the avoidance of certain diagnostic pitfalls, and the application of selected ancillary tests (cytochemical, immunologic, and molecular markers) will be reviewed. Finally, an overview of the newly proposed Milan System for Reporting Salivary Gland Cytopathology will be presented.

Target Audience

This educational activity is designed for pathologists, cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, students and other members of the cytopathology community.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize key cytologic features of selected salivary gland tumors
  • Avoid common pitfalls in the cytologic diagnosis of salivary gland tumors
  • Utilize immunocytochemical and molecular markers for salivary gland tumors
  • Be familiar with the newly proposed Milan System for Reporting Salivary Gland Cytopathology
