The primary objective of the event is to offer the participants a comprehensive review of problematic areas of gynecological and breast pathology. Hot topics such as ovarian, uterine and cervical tumors, as well as breast tumors and tumor-like conditions will be covered regarding how to approach the diagnosis, to recognize the most important diagnostic features, to deal with differential diagnosis, to report these lesions so that the clinician will understand and choose the best management for the patient. Also, areas such as frozen sections in gynecological pathology and molecular markers for diagnosis of gynecological pathology along with problematic issues in how to handle breast core needle biopsies will be covered.

The conference combines classroom lectures with high-quality microscopic screen projections and discussions of challenging cases. The participants will be able to attend lectures and to examine a variety of gynecological and breast tumors (benign and malignant) and tumor-like conditions on the microscope. The lectures will be focused on the main morphological diagnostic criteria, ancillary stains, molecular-genetic tools, with a particular attention to be paid to the differential diagnosis as well as most recent international guidelines providing treatment and follow-up information.

This conference is primarily aimed at practicing pathologists and residents, nevertheless, its multidisciplinary nature makes it relevant for other specialists as well (surgeons, oncologists, general practitioners, general laboratory medicine, biologists) and, last but not least, medical students.
