Pulmonary Cytology: Is it Benign or Malignant? Diagnostically Challenging Cases and Mimickers

 

Maria Luisa C. Policarpio-Nicolas, MD
Staff Pathologist
Cleveland Clinic
Cleveland, Ohio

 

This is a case-based didactic webinar that presents a spectrum of pulmonary/mediastinal specimens. Participants will be presented a variety of cases with diagnoses ranging from benign, reactive process to malignant. The differential diagnosis on the common and uncommon entities, ancillary tests and important pointers to avoid pitfalls will be discussed. An algorithm that will serve as a guide in navigating respiratory specimens including diagnostic pitfalls will also be presented.

Target Audience

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

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize benign/reactive entities that could potentially mimic malignant lung tumors
  • Recognize malignant tumors with unusual morphology presenting in the lung/mediastinum
  • Understand the usefulness of ancillary studies in the differential diagnosis of benign/reactive entities and malignant neoplasms
