Course Summary
 This four-day course will cover a broad spectrum of organ systems that
 provide specimens that pose many problems in differential diagnosis for
 the surgical pathologist. Areas to be covered are pathology of the
 esophagus, appendix, colon, liver, lung, lymph nodes, ovary and fallopian
 tube, placenta (including trophoblastic disease), uterine cervix
 (emphasizing cytopathology), prostate, skin, soft tissues and thyroid.
 The primary focus will be on interpretation by conventional light
 microscopy but where appropriate the application of histochemistry,
 immunohistochemistry and molecular pathology will be considered. Each
 participant will receive a comprehensive course syllabus.

            Course Objectives
            The objective of this course is to give practicing pathologists
            a comprehensive review of knowledge in the areas selected
            for presentation by authorities in the fields emphasizing new
            information. The goals are to enhance the ability of the
            pathologist to interpret correctly both common and
            uncommon entities, some of them recently described, and to
            present a balanced overview of the approach to microscopic
            evaluation and a guide to the judicious use of new techniques
            when they provide diagnostic aid.
            At the end of this course, the participant should be able to:

            I Have greater awareness of the many pitfalls in
              differential diagnosis that may be encountered,
              including those only recently appreciated.
            I Have an up-to-date knowledge of the classification
              of tumors and tumor-like lesions in the areas of
              pathology covered in the course.
            I Have increased knowledge of the role of
              immunohistochemistry and molecular pathology in
              differential diagnosis and their incorporation with
              conventional microscopic analysis in the approach to
              resolving difficult areas of differential diagnosis.

                                                               most beautiful lake in Italy, it has long
                                                               been a favorite of writers and artists. It

                                                               Latin poets Catullus, Virgil and Pliny,
                                                               and in more recent times by Goethe
                                                               (who called it “a miracle of nature”),

About Riva del Garda

            The lake can be toured by steamer, motor boat, or by driving along the roads that
            circle its entire shore, the most spectacular portion being the one that follows the
            corniche from Riva to Salò. Places worth visiting in the lake area include Arco
            (home of the world climbing championship), the top of the Monte Brione (a great
            place for hikers and mountain-bikers), Torbole (the windsurfing capital of the
            region), Malcesine (a delightful fishing village), Bardolino (where you can taste
            excellent wine in 43 different vineyards along the “wine road”), Gardone Riviera
            (with the Vittoriale, the extravagant estate built by the poet Gabriele D’Annunzio),
            and Sirmione (a place out of a fairy tale, with the famous Grottos of Catullus).

               Visiting the lake and its surroundings should be enough to satisfy the esthetic urges of
               most participants, but there are many additional options:
               G   A visit to the neighbouring lake of Como, which rivals Garda in beauty and popularity.
               G   A tour to Verona (90 Km), the city of Romeo and Juliet and the home of an
                   amazingly well-preserved Arena built by the Romans in A.D. 100 and still used for
                   summer opera performance (alas, not during the time of the meeting).
               G   A tour to Padova (200 Km), the city of St. Anthony, with the sculptural masterpieces
                   of Donatello and the Scrovegni chapel, adorned with the best pictorial work of Giotto.
               G   A tour to Parma (200 Km) and its surroundings, a compulsory pilgrimage for
                   Verdi lovers.
               G   A tour to Mantua (130 Km), the elegant city of the Gonzagas, patrons of the
                   painter Andrea Mantegna.
               G   A tour along the many spectacular villas built by Palladio around Vicenza on the
                   roads going to Venice, one of them faithfully reproduced by Jefferson at Monticello.
               G   A visit to Cremona (200 Km) the city of Stradivari and the other makers of violins
                   whose quality (and price) are still unsurpassed.
               G   Last but not least, a visit to Venice (180 Km), arguably the most beautiful city
                   in the world.
