Presentation Date: December 10, 2013; Expires: December 10, 2016
Despite limitations of the Pap Test for detecting glandular abnormalities, the cytology of glandular epithelium in the female genital tract has assumed greater importance in recent years. Improved sampling of the endocervical canal and an increase in the incidence of endocervical neoplasms has had an impact in detection of these lesions and their mimickers. This webinar will provide an overview of benign, reactive, and neoplastic glandular lesions in liquid based preparations (both Thin Prep and SurePath preparations). Pitfalls in glandular lesion diagnosis and patient management issues are highlighted.
