This course covers both non-neoplastic and neoplastic pathology of the tubular gastrointestinal tract. The focus on interpreting biopsies rather than resections, since biopsies are what direct the need for large operations and these, in many respects, are the samples that have the greatest impact. In addition to discussion of biopsy interpretation of specific anatomic sites in the tubular gut, lectures address issues that comprise the entire gastrointestinal tract, namely iatrogenic injuries and mesenchymal tumors.

Learning Objectives

After viewing this program, the participant will be better able to:

  • Discuss the most recent histopathological classifications of various gastrointestinal polyps and neoplasms that are currently recognized by the WHO in all areas of the gastrointestinal tract, including mesenchymal tumors
  • Recognize multiple forms of nonneoplastic injury to the gastrointestinal tract, including iatrogenic injury, disorders of malabsorption, inflammatory bowel disease, autoimmune and infectious gastritis, and infectious conditions including sexually transmitted disease-associated injury to the anorectal area
  • Decide what immunoreactions are most appropriate for validating the diagnosis of the main gastrointestinal tumors
  • Describe the main molecular genetic alterations which occur in key gastrointestinal tumors, the knowledge of which are/would be essential for planning future target therapies
  • Recognize common mimickers and avoid pitfalls encountered on a regular basis
