Dear colleagues,


On the behalf of the organizing committee, I am delighted to invite you to the Recent developments in breast and gynecological pathology Eurogynpath Conference to be held in Targu Mures, Romania, between May 7-8th 2020. This conference is organized by Histopat-Invest Laboratory Tîrgu Mureș in association with the Department of Pathology of The University of Medicine, Pharmacy, Science, and Technology of Tîrgu Mureș, and Medicard Association.

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 tubo-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 stage and report these lesions so that the clinician will understand and choose the best management for the patient. Also, areas such as immunohistochemistry and recent advances in the pathologic assessment of the sentinel lymph node in breast pathology, endometrial cancer tumor typing in the genomic era, gestational trophoblastic pathology, classification, grossing and staging issues in cervical pathology, 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.

Topics will cover subjects such as:
A. Gynecological pathology (endometrial cancer tumor typing, molecular classification of uterine mesenchymal tumors, gestational trophoblastic pathology, classification , grossing and staging of squamous and glandular carcinoma of the cervix, precursor lesions of the cervix, tubo-ovarian high-grade serous carcinoma and precursors, rare epithelial malignant tumors of the cervix).
B. Breast pathology (triple negative breast cancers, immunohistochemistry in breast cancer, fibroepithelial lesions of the breast, pathologic assessment of sentinel lymph node).

Being secretary for 4 years and the current Chair of the Gynecological Pathology Working Group (European Society of Pathology) allows me to participate in the best pathology scientific meetings and to select top speakers. This year, we are privileged again to have world-recognized top speakers from the USA and Canada.
A detailed scientific program with titles of the presentations will be uploaded to the website ( ).

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.
