9 April 2019: Case of the Week is now Case of the Month

The Case of the Week is now Case of the Month.

We accept straightforward (i.e. not controversial) cases with good educational value that pathologists may occasionally encounter in practice and that can be diagnosed with a few H&E photos. Cases that are rare at a particular site are best sent to a journal. 

To submit a case of the month, first check our website for a similar case (review cases by diagnosis), then email the clinical history, diagnosis, images with excellent quality and the name of a second pathologist who confirmed the diagnosis to Typically we write the discussion.

Our editorial board will then review the case, and we will notify you if it is accepted or not.

In May, we plan to start a Weekly Image Quiz, featuring an image with a multiple choice question and a link for more information.

Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to receiving your interesting cases.

8 April 2019: New server installed

We have switched to a new server, after using our old server for 4 years. You should not see any differences, but it is possible there are some glitches. If so, please email me at so we can fix them ASAP. 

We switch servers to ensure we have the latest technology to run our website, including the latest server software. We copy all the data from the old to the new server, but sometimes the small changes in the software and hardware cause problems.

Check out our Industry News page. We have updated it with the following articles from:

5 April 2019: Record Number of Home Page Visits

March 2019 has been another record breaking month for Our site hit a record number of Home Page visits. Last month, we had 252,558 visits to our Home Page alone! To see our other traffic statistics, please visit:

Thanks again for using our website.

5 April 2019: Case of the Month

We are changing the frequency of our interesting cases from weekly to monthly. After we developed a more intensive review process for each case, we found it took an inordinate amount of time to develop each case, and so are reducing the frequency of these cases. 

However, we know pathologists like looking at images, and will soon be starting a Weekly Image Quiz, featuring an image, a multiple choice question about it, the correct answer and an explanation and a link to the topic with more information.

5 April 2019: Cytopathology Chapter

For 2019, we are focusing on restructuring our free online textbook to make it as relevant as possible to practicing pathologists. 

We are thinking of removing our Cytopathology chapter, because currently, many surgical pathology topics have their own sections on cytology description and images. Thus, a separate cytopathology chapter is confusing.

Do you use the Cytology competency assessments (which are from 2012) or the FNA procedural topics (which are from 2013)? We know they have only a small number of page views, but we want your comments. We do plan to rewrite some of them, but for different chapters (thyroid or salivary glands). Email your comments to or click on the Comment tab in the Header or Footer.
