Presentation Date: June 24, 2014; Expires: June 24, 2017
This archive will be a practical review and discussion of selected cases in pediatric cytopathology; illustrating a variety of common and uncommon entities seen in young patients. Each case will be presented with a review of the cytopathological findings, followed by the differential diagnosis and pitfalls to be aware of in children. There will also be a discussion of the utility of different ancillary studies in select cases. The cases will cover common infectious, lymphoid, and small round blue cell tumors that occur in pediatric cytopathology, in addition to uncommon entities that one should be aware of and consider in the differential diagnosis.
