This unique, highly popular, five day update course is designed for pathologists at Consultant and Senior Trainee level and suitable for the final examination for MRCPath. The course is slanted towards practical diagnostic histopathology, providing a comprehensive coverage of the histopathology of breast disease, with special emphasis on areas which pose diagnostic difficulties. The course is based, historically, on the extensive referral collection of Professor JG Azzopardi, to which is continuously added new cases from Charing Cross, Nottingham City and Guy’s Hospitals. The participants will be given ample time to study microscopic slides, followed by illustrated discussions, of around 150 cases spanning the whole spectrum of breast diseases including examples of common and problematic conditions as well as unusual lesions. In addition there will be several daily talks on specific topics, given by eminent breast pathologists and followed by discussions. The topics will include: new developments in diagnostic breast pathology, proliferative lesions including atypical ductal hyperplasia, columnar cell change, flat epithelial atypia, lobular neoplasia and carcinoma in-situ, Problematic core biopsies, dealing with the gross specimen, prognostic and predictive factors including discussion of micrometastases, fibro-epithelial, spindle cell and papillary lesions, encapsulated papillary carcinoma, diagnosis of metastatic lesions in the breast, examination of breast tissue after neo-adjuvant chemotherapy, breast immunohistochemistry, molecular diagnosis of sentinel lymph node biopsies, breast cancer molecular profiling and classification and fine needle aspirate of breast lesions and axillary lymph nodes.
