Request for the members of IAP-ID and IAPM who are interested in participating in the slide seminar on Transplant pathology in the IAPID slide seminar to be held in Jaipur on 1st December, 2016

The interested members of IAP-ID and IAPM are requested to send the details of the cases to be selected for IAPID slide seminar to be held in Jaipur on 1st December 2016. I have got some responses related to Renal transplant pathology but not at all from other pathologists who are experienced in Liver, Heart, Lung and pancreas transplant pathology.

  • The cases should be unique and different than the routine cases (e.g multiple pathology or pathology similar to routine pathology with different management protocol). The routine pathology should be discussed as a differential diagnosis.
  • The problems related to solid organ transplant pathology will be preferred; however one or two unique cases related to bone marrow transplant pathology may be included.
  • Routine infection related cases or straightforward post transplant lymphomatous pathology should be avoided unless there are some unique features. (Mention the uniqueness of the cases either clinical or pathological while sending the cases)
  • The pathology related to liver, heart, lung and pancreatic transplant, which are not routinely discussed in the conferences, would be encouraged.
  • The cases must be from the discussant's own archive and he/she was involved in the management of the cases as a pathologist
  • In the two-hour session on transplant pathology, a total of 14 cases will be discussed and a consolidated discussion will be done in the last 15 minutes. One speaker can discuss maximum of two cases.
  • A detailed clinical history with pathology including the differential diagnosis should constitute the presentation.
  • Please send the details of the cases in the following e-mail address- ashim126@gmail.com
