CS11-19 Practical Updates in Challenging Gastrointestinal Topics – GIPS
• Describe the differences in gene expression between hyperplastic polyps and sessile serrated polyps, discuss the significance of sessile serrated polyps in IBD, and identify the differences between serrated lesions of the appendix and serrated lesions of the colon.
• Be up to date with the new WHO (5th edition) classification of biliary neoplasms, understand the diagnostic challenges and clinical implications of biliary neoplasms, and understand new molecular pathology and genetics information in biliary neoplasms.
• Evaluate and report on anal cytology using updated guidelines (Bethesda system updates), understand screening strategies for populations at risk for anal neoplasia, and implement terminology and guidelines recommended by the Lower Anogenital Squamous Terminology project consensus.

• Recognize the changes to the nomenclature and staging of appendiceal neoplasms.
• Distinguish mucin “carry-over” from true extra-appendiceal mucin, and realize that this distinction is critical for accurate staging.
• Apply the latest guidelines to accurately diagnosis anal squamous dysplasia.

CS12-18 Rodger C. Haggitt GI Pathology Society: Selected Updates on Cancer Reporting
with Rish Pai, MD PhD (moderator), Won-Tak Choi MD PhD, Changqing Ma, Xuefeng Zhang
Wednesday, October 03, 2018, 09:40 AM – 11:10 AM
This course is presented by the Rodger C. Haggitt GI Pathology Society and will discuss the keys to effective reporting of resection specimens from gastrointestinal tumors. The course has didactic component foundation, followed by case presentations that illustrate and reinforce key points, demonstrating how they are used to effectively recognize, diagnosis, and report on these important lesions. Changes in consensus guidelines and AJCC reporting will be presented. There will be ample time for questions and discussion between the presenters and participants will be encouraged. The course is intended for practicing surgical pathologists as well as residents and fellows.
- Understand the changes to reporting of colorectal carcinoma with particular emphasis on those changes that affect patient management
- Properly classify and correctly report tumors of the esophagus and stomach.
- Identify differences and similarities in reporting of gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumors based on anatomic location.
Topic: Anatomic Pathology, Gastrointestinal, Surgical Pathology
Credits: 1.5 CME/CMLE, 1.5 SAM
Audience: Pathologists, Pathology Residents
Physician Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-based learning and improvement
