Why Attend?

Over the past decade the International Society of Urological Pathologists (ISUP) has updated and revised guidelines for the diagnosis, categorization and characterization of kidney tumors. The 2016 edition of the WHO Blue Book for GU tract tumors will incorporate these updates. It is important that the pathologists be familiar with new, substantially updated and retired entities that lead to tumor type-specific clinical management.

After viewing this lecture, attendees should be able to:

  • Be acquainted with significantly revised old entities and recently introduced new variants of renal neoplasia.
  • Be able to resolve the differential diagnoses of problematic entities that have significant prognostic and treatment implications.
  • Will understand how kidney tumor pathology integrates with molecular findings and what ancillary techniques are recommended for precision diagnostics.
