Diagnostic Thyroid Pathology and Cytology

During the course, the participants will review approximately 50 cases dealing with a variety of neoplastic and non-neoplastic thyroid lesions. The cases have been carefully selected to illustrate common diagnostic problems and pitfalls in thyroid pathology and provide the basis for in-depth discussion of morphologic criteria and usefulness of complementary investigations in achieving the correct diagnosis. In addition to the slide seminar, several lectures by experts in pathology will be provided.

Hot topics this year:

  • WHO 2022 classification: important changes for thyroid tumors in focus
  • Molecular testing on FNA: pro and contra
  • Highly selective RET-kinase inhibitors and RET testing: when and how

We kindly ask for registration from February 6 to September 10, 2023 by online registration.
