Description

American Association of Ocular Oncologists and Pathologists

Pathology of the Orbit Current Diagnostic Approach

Sunday, March 13, 2016
1:30 PM 5:00 PM
CC 605

Moderator: Patricia Chevez-Barrios, MD, The Houston Methodist Hospital, Houston, TX

Course Description:
The topics are determined by a USCAP companion committee in our society that is formed by three members. The current topic of orbital and lacrimal gland pathology was selected because this is a frequent type of pathology encountered that is challenging for those not used to see these lesions. This topic has not been selected before for the companion meeting. The target audience is surgical pathologists, dermatopathologists and neuropathologists that usually sign out cases from these areas. It is also targeted to residents and fellows.

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  1. Describe the importance of recognizing the most frequent pathologic diseases by location in the orbit.
  2. Describe the most frequent differential diagnosis in orbital pathology.
  3. Describe the impact of appropriate diagnosis in management of orbital tumors.
  4. Describe the indications for frozen sections, flow cytometry and other molecular tests in orbital pathology.
