The rarity and complexity of testicular tumors present unique challenges for genitourinary pathologists. Even specialized genitourinary pathologist deal with only a handful of cases annually. The spectrum of morphologic variations in testicular tumor is tremendous and poses a great challenge for the pathologists especially in general surgical pathology practice because of limited exposure to these rare tumors. This course helps to enhance the diagnostic skills of the pathologists, especially genitourinary pathologists, who often deal with difficult testicular neoplasms. Since WHO classification is the most followed throughout the world, our effort is devoted to comprehensively educate pathologists regarding the changes in new classification to streamline the adaptation of this new scheme and in return increase awareness, uniformity and diagnostic accuracy.
Practicing academic and community pathologists, pathologists-in-training, GU pathologists.
