Call for the Pacific Northwest and Arctic Animal Mystery Slide Case Submissions

The Pacific Northwest Animal Pathology session chairs are pleased to entertain submissions for the Pacific Northwest and Arctic Animal  Mystery Slide Session, an evening of case presentations that relate to animal species associated with the Pacific Northwest all the way to the North Pole. Cases considered may highlight unique disease presentations, classic entities, or even true mysteries. 
Oral case presentations will be approximately 10 minutes, with five minutes for questions/discussion. Any interested parties, including clinicians, pathologists, residents, and research scientists are encouraged to submit cases.
For each case, please submit:

1. Three H&E-stained, coverslipped slides of photographic quality.
2. A Microsoft word or pdf document with signalment page, containing a brief pertinent history, laboratory diagnostics, gross description, and any gross photos.
3. A brief summary of the diagnosis and case relevance for the session chairs.
4. If accepted for presentation, a separate page with an enhanced microscopic description, diagnosis, discussion, and brief reference list (if applicable) will be required.
Please send slides and case information to:

Dr. Judy St. Leger
SeaWorld of San Diego

San Diego, CA 92109
The case submission deadline is August 1, 2017.

Call for Neuropath Mystery Slide Case Submissions for the 2017 ACVP Annual Meeting

Do you have a great neuropath case you’d like to share with your colleagues?  A tricky case on which you’d like input?  Send your submisions to session chair Dr. Jey Koehler at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.with the subject line “(Your name) NPMS CASE SUBMISSION” and attach the following:    

A single PDF document consisting of a brief summary of the case including your name, institution, and contact information, plus a short history, signalment, summary of representative gross and microscopic findings, any additional supporting data, and a couple of good quality images (histo +/- gross) that are representative of the lesion.  As always, true “unsolved mysteries” are welcome!

Please remember that if your case is selected you (or a designated and hopefully highly entertaining minion) must be able to present at the ACVP Annual Meeting in Vancouver, and you must be able to provide 100 high-quality, H+E stained slides in which the lesion is well represented.  **Exceptions to this may be made at the Chair’s discretion for particularly compelling cases that can’t yield 100 slides, in which case digital format may be acceptable but we will still need approximately 6 slides for scanning, archiving, and panelist distribution.

Deadline for submissions is August 15!
