Patterns and Pitfalls of Common and Uncommon Entities of the Endocervix
Blythe K. Gorman, MD
Assistant Professor Houston Methodist Hospital Houston, Texas
This is a case-based didactic webinar that explores a variety of endocervical lesions with emphasis on the correlation between cytology and histology. Participants will be presented with a spectrum of cases, with diagnoses ranging from benign to premalignant to malignant. A review of common and uncommon entities will focus on how pathologists can avoid pitfalls, use ancillary studies appropriately, and distinguish among morphologically similar entities. Participants will also get pointers on differentiating between high grade squamous lesions involving glands and true glandular lesions, as well as insights into the pitfalls associated with metaplasia, polyps, and endometrial sampling. Key features for diagnosis and work up of uncommon lesions will also be discussed, including various subtypes of endocervical adenocarcinoma. In addition, a review of current management guidelines for glandular lesions will facilitate more effective communication of diagnoses to other members of the patient’s healthcare team.
