Call for 2015 Mystery Slide Cases: Submissions Due May 1, 2015

Submissions are requested for the 2015 ASVCP Mystery Slide Case Review Session. This is a popular and interactive opportunity to share cases and experiences among attendees. Suitable material includes hematology, cytology, or surgical pathology slides. These must be submitted with pertinent history, hematologic and clinical chemistry results. Case selection is based on broad species representation, specimen quality, pathologic processes, and representation of disease entities that have not been presented at the conference in recent years. Cases that are anticipated to generate controversy or discussion will be favored in the selection process. Based on input from members, the format of the session will be different in 2015 in the following ways:

  • A cover page with contributors' information and a short summary on the virtues of the case must be included with the case history. This slide session is quite competitive and this summary is an opportunity for the contributors to make the best argument for selection of their case.
  • The case history should now include two multiple choice questions (3-5 options for each question), selected to stimulate discussion.
  • There are now page and reference limits on the Case Summary.
  • There will be a panel of 3-4 clinical pathologists, including the moderator, who will facilitate discussion and ask questions of the presenter. We are seeking willing guinea pigs (volunteers) for this panel!! Please contact Tracy Stokol if interested in volunteering for this panel.
  • We anticipate that fewer cases will be presented (approximately 15) to allow time for discussion.

Submit a Mystery slide case.

Call for Cases for Discussion: Submissions Due June 1, 2015

Submissions are requested for the sixth ASVCP Case Discussion Session. The ASVCP Case Discussion Session will be held at a separate time from the ASVCP Mystery Slide Case Session (see above call for cases). It is anticipated that 2-4 cases will be selected for presentation, depending on their complexity.

Based on input from members, this case discussion has been renamed to illustrate the change in focus. The focus of this session is now hematologic (including flow cytometric), endocrinologic or clinical chemistry data: cytology and surgical biopsy data are supplemental. The goal of this session is to provide a forum for discussion and/or seek input from other clinical pathologists on diagnostic challenges, laboratory protocols, best practice etc in a collaborative environment. To stimulate discussion, the session will now include a panel of 3-4 clinical pathologists, including the moderator, that will ask questions of the audience and presenter. We need volunteers for this exciting panel! Please contact Tracy Stokol if interested in volunteering.
