Abstract :

Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are a family of neoplasm with wide range of morphologic, functional and behavioral characteristics. These tumors show some similar cytologic features regardless of the primary organ of origin. Many pathologists and cytotechnologists find this diagnosis difficult and challenging especially in unusual locations or presentation as a metastasis. The goal of this workshop is helping audience to get familiar with the cytologic features of NE tumors and its differential diagnostic pitfalls. This presentation show many examples of these tumors in different grade of differentiation and locations. There will be a discussion about the appropriate immunohistochemistry studies on these tumors.
