2nd Winter Course Cytopathology: Respiratory tract and FNA of Head & Neck and Pancreas

IAP Training Center, Joseph-Schumpeter-Allee 33, 53227 Bonn

Course description:

In lung cancer diagnostics cytology plays a major role as most of the patients are in an advanced stage on primary diagnosis and a resection is not an option. Therefore all the required diagnostic assays have to be done on small biopsies and cytological samples. In two workshops common benign and malignant changes are treated.

Head and neck lesions are easily sampled by fine needle aspiration. In many cases this simple procedure enables the clinician to plan further clinical work-up and therapy. In this tutorial workshops on thyroid and salivary gland cytopathology are presented.

Progress in endoscopic and ultrasound techniques has lead to an increase of EUS-guided fine needle aspiration of the pancreas. A systematic approach will be presented with an accompanying workshop.

The systematic approach will be complemented by lectures on the new „International System for Reporting Lung Cytology“, on differential diagnoses and pitfalls and two lectures on molecular pathology.

The workshop is planned as a hybrid event with reduced on-site attendance and accompanying live online event. Only fully vaccinated and recovered persons are admitted for the presence participation.


  • Vaccinated: presentation of vaccination certificate, fully vaccinated: 2nd vaccination must have taken place at least 14 days ago.
  • Recovered: submission of positive PCR test result that is at least 28 days and no more than 6 months old.
  • Recovered vaccinated: 1st vaccination and positive PCR test result that must be at least 28 days old. Presentation of vaccination certificate.
