Call for Neuropath Mystery Slide Case Submissions for the 2017 ACVP Annual Meeting
A single PDF document consisting of a brief summary of the case including your name, institution, and contact information, plus a short history, signalment, summary of representative gross and microscopic findings, any additional supporting data, and a couple of good quality images (histo +/- gross) that are representative of the lesion. As always, true “unsolved mysteries” are welcome!
Please remember that if your case is selected you (or a designated and hopefully highly entertaining minion) must be able to present at the ACVP Annual Meeting in Vancouver, and you must be able to provide 100 high-quality, H+E stained slides in which the lesion is well represented. **Exceptions to this may be made at the Chair’s discretion for particularly compelling cases that can’t yield 100 slides, in which case digital format may be acceptable but we will still need approximately 6 slides for scanning, archiving, and panelist distribution.
Deadline for submissions is August 15!
