Mimics of High-Grade Urothelial Carcinoma in Urinary Cytology
Patrick McIntire, MD
With widespread implementation of The Paris System for Reporting Urinary Cytology, much focus has shifted to diagnosing high-grade urothelial carcinoma (HGUC). Clinicians may proceed with procedures (i.e. cystectomy and/or nephroureterectomy), which carry significant clinical ramifications, based on cytology diagnoses alone. Thus, a in-depth review of benign mimics of HGUC is prudent. This presentation will cover common and rare mimics that cytopathologists encounter in routine practice.
This educational activity is designed for pathologists, cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, students and other members of the cytopathology community.
- Review the features of high-grade urothelial carcinoma in urinary cytology specimens
- Review common and rare benign mimics of high-grade urothelial carcinoma
- Be able to describe the cytomorphologic similarities and differences between the two
