22 June 2017: Case of Week page changes

It's a small change, but we wanted to let you know that when you click on a Case on one of the 4 Case of the Week pages (by clinical history, by diagnosis, by category/subspecialty with diagnosis, by category/subspecialty without diagnosis), the Case will now appear in a new window.  We made this change to improve consistency across our website.

21 June 2017: Images needed - Kidney tumor, Mucinous tubular and spindle cell carcinoma

Our request this week is for micro images relevant to:

Kidney tumor, Mucinous tubular and spindle cell carcinoma

We believe it is important to have an adequate number of high quality images on our server, because images on other servers often disappear.  If you own images of these entities, please email them as attachments to Dr. Nat Pernick at, with any corresponding clinical history.  There is no payment for image contributions, but we will acknowledge you as contributor, so please indicate how you want your name to be displayed.

19 June 2017: Joke of the Month

Joke of the Month, submitted by Dr. Ruiz:
Steve (someone i just met): So you're a doctor?

Me: Yes, I'm a pathologist.

Steve: And what's that?

Me: I examine cells with a microscope, mostly from tissue samples but also from needle aspirations or frozen sections. I give a diagnosis of a tumor or inflammation, so the attending doctor can provide proper treatment. I also interpret special studies that give prognostic information for cancer, and helps choose specific therapies for some illnesses. I also do autopsies.

Steve: So, you do autopsies...

5 June 2017: New Conference Database

We have posted a revised Conferences page based on a new database, which makes it easier to add and remove conferences.  The changes you will see include: conferences listed by organization (for organizations that post 6+ conferences at a time), total number of conferences on the page, and numbers of conferences per organization, location and subspecialty.  There is also a cleaner look to the page.  Let us know if you have any comments.
