ASVCP Mystery Slides and Case Discussions

The ASVCP Mystery Slides and Case Discussions are a highlight of the Annual ACVP/ASVCP conference, allowing clinical pathologists, trainees, and other attendees to share in the joy and challenge of great cases. 


Desired cases include:

  • Classic examples or unique/unusual representations of hematologic, cytologic, or clinical chemistry findings associated with diseases, drugs, or toxicologic or research studies
  • Surgical biopsies from lesions that would be examined by cytology with relevant cytologic images
  • Challenging cases, even those still unresolved or with ill-defined outcomes

More information is available behind the members-only section of the ASVCP website here.  The deadline for submissions is July 1, 2020

 

2020 Primate Pathology Pre-Meeting Workshop:
New and Emerging NHP Pathology Topics & Call for Short Case Submissions

The Primate Pathology Workshop Committee is pleased to announce the 2020 Primate Pathology Pre-Meeting Workshop associated with the concurrent Annual Meetings of the ACVP and ASVCP. 

The theme of this year’s Primate Pathology Workshop is New and Emerging, and we plan to explore new and emerging diseases, NHP models, new discoveries about known diseases, new testing methods, or other unique entities in primate pathology. In the morning, our invited guest speakers will cover diverse topics in anatomic and clinical pathology of NHPs, from academia to zoo/wildlife to industry. The workshop will be valuable to students and young pathologists but also appeal to all who don't get to work regularly with these species and would like to learn more. 

In addition to presentations by invited speakers, there will be “mystery” NHP case presentations from workshop attendees in the afternoon. Case material with a focus on new, emerging, or unique topics is encouraged, but material can be from any interesting primate case. Oral case presentations will be 10-12 minutes with 3-5 minutes for questions/discussion. Any interested parties, including clinicians, pathologists, and research scientists are encouraged to submit cases. 

For each case, please submit:

  • A single H&E-stained, cover-slipped slide, which will be scanned OR a CD/USB stick with an Aperio scan of the glass slide. The slide can be returned to you.
  • A Microsoft Word document with signalment page, containing a brief pertinent history, laboratory diagnostics, gross description, and possibly gross photos.
  • On a separate page, the microscopic description, diagnosis, discussion, and brief reference list (if applicable).

Please send slides and case information to rebekah.keesler@gmail.com and/or:

Call for Neuropath Mystery Slide Case Submissions

It is that time again for the annual mystery slide case submissions!  There is no theme this year, so go through your archives and see what kind of cool cases you have! This is a fun and interactive session, so search your files for the bizarre, challenging, and truly unknown cases!  Send your submissions to the session chair, Dr. Andrew D. Miller, 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 no more than five good quality images (histo +/- gross) that are representative of the lesion. As always, true “unsolved mysteries” are highly encouraged!

The 2020 face-to-face Annual Meeting in Chicago has been cancelled and a virtual event is in the initial planning stages. Only ten HE recuts will be required if your case is chosen for inclusion as all cases will be scanned and made available for folks to review online (glass slides will be sent to panelists, used for scanning, and archived).  The target number of case presentations for 2020 is six. 

Deadline for submissions is August 31, 2020! Decisions on cases chosen for the session will be made no later than September 7.  Please don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Miller with any questions.
