Call for Short Case Submissions

2018 Primate Pathology Pre-Meeting Workshop: November 3, 2018
"Important Non-Human Primate Viral Pathogens"
Submission Deadline: August 15, 2018

The Primate Pathology Workshop Committee is pleased to announce the 201Primate Pathology Pre-Meeting Workshop associated with the concurrent Annual Meetings of the ACVP & ASVCP. 

The theme of this year’s workshop is Important Non-Human Primate Viral Pathogens. The first focus will be on addressing established viral pathogens in primate colonies. Invited speakers will address simian herpesviruses as well as an array of other endemic viruses that are often ignored but that can affect research/study outcomes by immunomodulatory or other means. The second focus of the workshop will be on Emerging Viral Pathogens in primates. Invited speakers will address Ebolavirus among others.

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 viral disease is encouraged, but material can be from any interesting, unique, or classic primate disease. 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, coverslipped slide, which will be scanned OR a CD/USB stick with an Aperio scan of the glass slide.

 ·      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 boulineautoxpath@gmail.comand/or:

Dr. Theresa Boulineau
65 Mounthaven Drive
Livingston, NJ, 07039 USA

All submitters must be available to present on the afternoon of November 3, 2018. The case submission deadline is August 15, 2018. Any questions? Contact Theresa at or (973) 396-7843.


Call for Neuropathology Mystery Slide Case Submissions

Monday, November 5, 2018 at the 2018 Annual Meeting Submission Deadline: August 15, 2018.

Do you have a great neuropathology case that you would like to share with your colleagues? A tricky case that you want discussion on? Send your submissions to session chair Dr. Andrew D. Miller at, 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! 

Please remember that if your case is chosen, the submitter (or designated alternate, preferably a resident) must be able to present at the ACVP Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., 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.  If this is the case, a 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! Decisions on cases chosen for the session will be made no later than September 15.
