This annual winter symposium of the BDIAP is devoted to Gynaecological Pathology, covering updates across a range of diagnostic pathology in the female genital tract and includes presentations on diagnostically challenging areas within this specialty.


The first day of the symposium is dedicated to updates in diagnostic gynaecological pathology, covering a broad range of important and challenging topics. The sessions on ovarian pathology include ‘Sex cord stromal tumours of the ovary and their mimics’, ‘Metastatic tumours to the ovary’, and ‘Prognostic indicators in serous borderline tumour and extraovarian disease’. The endometrial pathology sessions include ‘Endometrial cancer histological typing and molecular classification’, ‘Interpretation of mismatch repair immunohistochemistry in endometrial cancer’, and ‘Diagnostically challenging endometrial polyps’. There are sessions on soft tissue tumours of the uterus; ‘STUMP where are we now with them?’ and ‘Recent advances in mesenchymal tumours of the uterus’. With a session on cervical pathology, ‘Pre-malignant and malignant cervical glandular lesions: new concepts and problematic aspects’. The day concludes with a reflection on ‘Pitfalls in gynaecological pathology identified through referral practice and how to avoid them; a quarter of a century’s experience’.
