Liver Pathology 2016: New Perspectives on Old Themes

Sunday, March 13, 2016
8:30 AM 12:00 PM
CC Ballroom 6E

Moderators: M. Isabel Fiel, MD, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY

Course Description:
The topics were chosen in order to update the audience of issues pertinent to both the practicing general pathologist and liver pathology subspecialists alike. The presentations will cover drug-induced liver injury and the histological features that a pathologist needs to be aware of when confronted with a liver biopsy, the newly-described entity, atypical hepatocellular lesions, and how these are managed, as well as an update on metabolic liver diseases with a focus on how these diseases present in adults. Additional lectures will cover recent developments in primary biliary cholangitis and primary sclerosing cholangitis, a presentation on the overlap syndromes of primary biliary cirrhosis and autoimmune hepatitis and primary sclerosing cholangitis and autoimmune hepatitis, with the final presentation being on pre-neoplastic lesions of the biliary tree and what is recently known.

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Update the attendees on what the pathologist needs to know regarding drug-induced liver injury (DILI), and to summarize the role of the pathologist in diagnosing and helping manage a patient with DILI.
  2. Discuss the histological features of atypical hepatocellular lesions and the approach to their diagnosis and management.
  3. Review the different metabolic liver diseases that may present in adults with emphasis on the lesser known entities.
  4. Update the audience on what is new on primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC).
  5. Discuss what is known about overlap syndromes of PBC and autoimmune hepatitis as well as PSC and autoimmune hepatitis.
  6. Update the audience on novel findings of pre-neoplastic lesions in the biliary tree.
