Description

American Association of Neuropathologists

Pineal Region Tumors

Saturday, March 4, 2017
7:00 PM 10:00 PM
CC 221 A-C

Session Credits: 3 CME and 3 SAMs

Moderators: Christine Fuller, MD, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati, OH
Adekunle Adesina, MD, PhD, Baylor University, Texas Children’s Hospital, Houston, TX

Course Description:
To address the difficult and challenging issues that can be encountered by both the practicing surgical pathologists and neuropathologists alike. The regional approach will facilitate the understanding of the practical issues and differential diagnostic problems that arise in actual practice. Many practicing pathologists encounter surgical neuropathology specimens and are in a position to provide intraoperative consultations and final diagnoses on a broad spectrum of neurosurgical specimens, while they are not necessarily trained in the field of neuropathology. These talks will provide a framework for them to formulate their work-up and diagnoses, while educating them on the intricacies and pitfalls of various tumors seen in the pineal region.

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

  • Describe the classification of pineal parenchymal tumors and WHO grading
  • Identify the major tumors encountered in the pineal region and their differential diagnosis
  • Effectively avoid pitfalls arising from the unusual histologic appearances inherent to the pineal region
  • Become familiar with the tumors with papillary features arising in the pineal region
