ACVP
Date: Saturday, November 09, 2019
Duration: 1 day(s)
Location: San Antonio Rivercenter Hotel San Antonio, TX
Description:
The workshop will be divided into two sections: Epithelial Tumors of the Skin and Tumors of the Mammary Gland. The presentations will emphasize material from Volumes 1 and 2 of Surgical Pathology of Tumors of Domestic Animals, published by the Davis-Thompson DVM Foundation. The presentation on Skin Tumors will be focused specifically on more challenging diagnoses, and include distinctive histologic features of neoplastic and non-neoplastic epithelial "tumors" of the skin, differential diagnosis and clinically important information. A majority of the session will be comprised of presentations on Mammary Tumors. This discussion will emphasize those criteria that are important in establishing a definitive diagnosis, including criteria of malignancy and grading of mammary tumors. Diseases of the teat will focus on neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases that may be encountered in veterinary diagnostic pathology. Finally, difficult cases will be discussed; attendees will have an opportunity to review these cases before the workshop.
Special Instructions:
Registration will be through ACVP: https://www.acvp.org/page/2019_Pre_Meeting_Workshops
