Pulmonary infections remain a diagnostic challenge for diagnostic anatomic and clinical pathologists. Known and emerging pathogens continue to challenge our diagnostic techniques. This symposium is designed to provide information on integrated histopathologic and molecular diagnostic techniques in this rapidly evolving area. Experts in diagnosis of viral, fungal and parasitic pathology will provide an update on current and evolving histopathologic and molecular diagnosis of pulmonary infections.
Upon Completion of this educational activity, participants should be better able to:
- Describe the histopathologic features of viral infections of the lungs, including those of influenza and novel / emerging respiratory infections.
- Describe available and emerging molecular diagnostic tests for pulmonary viral infections.
- Describe histopathologic features of common and uncommon pulmonary fungal infections, and the available molecular diagnostic techniques for identification and confirmation.
- Describe histopathologic features of parasitic lung infections, as well as artifacts mimicking infectious organisms.
