Urologic pathology specimens constitute a significant portion of surgical pathologists daily work. There are numerous urologic diseases and neoplastic conditions that are histologically similar but have distinct clinical and therapeutic implications. Their correct diagnosis and classification are critical but often pose a significant challenge to surgical pathologists. Rather than reviewing general GU topics, the faculty of this short course have identified common diagnostic difficulties in GU pathology that surgical pathologists grapple with in daily sign-out based on their subspecialty sign-out and consultation experience.
