Lisa A. Teot, MD
Presentation date: June 28, 2016; Expires: June 28, 2019
This presentation will provide a comprehensive discussion of selected common and uncommon lesions encountered in the pediatric population. For each case the cytologic features will be reviewed, a differential diagnosis will be developed based on the cytologic and clinical findings, and the role of ancillary studies in narrowing the diagnostic considerations or arriving at a definitive diagnosis will be discussed. Limitations and diagnostic pitfalls pertinent to each case will be discussed, with emphasis on features unique to pediatric specimens. The cases will include infectious diseases, lymphoid proliferations and round cell malignancies, as encountered in fine needle aspirates or exfoliative samples.
