Brief overview of what is being presented/discussed (this will also be shown in the Annual Meeting Program Book):
Despite numerous advances in the field, the diagnosis, classification, grading, and management of cystic and intraductal lesions of the pancreatobiliary tract remain controversial. Additionally, recently described entities such as intraductal tubulopapillary neoplasm (ITPN) and intraductal papillary neoplasm of the bile duct (IPNB) remain diagnostically challenging, and their prognostic implications are poorly understood. The mission of the Pancreatobiliary Pathology Society is to educate surgical and cytopathologists on the importance of the advances in this complex area and will hopefully transform the way we practice pancreatobiliary pathology. The Education Committee, in consultation with Society officers, determined the title, contents, and speakers of this companion meeting.
The chosen topics represent a 360-degree expert evaluation of cystic and intraductal pancreatobiliary lesions in the step-wise manner in which they are often encountered, from the surgeon’s perspective, to their cytomorphologic and molecular characteristics, as well as their histomorphology.
