There is a group of uncommon lung lesions which are not often covered in currently available pulmonary pathology courses, but which can occur with sufficient frequency in both community and academic practices to pose significant diagnostic challenges for pathologists as well as their clinical colleagues. This presentation will utilize a conventional case study approach to review some of these lesions. Presentations will be practically oriented with concise discussions (i.e. 10-12 minutes per case) that emphasize key clinical features and differential diagnosis. Both neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions will be included. The purpose is to enable practitioners at all levels to successfully handle potentially difficult problems in neoplastic and non-neoplastic lung disease. A complete syllabus and a CD including all PowerPoint presentations will be distributd at the course.
