Diagnostic Slide Session
American Association of Neuropathologists


The diagnostic slide session has been a part of the annual meeting of the AANP since 1959.  A complete archive of cases with a searchable database is kindly hosted by the University of Pittsburgh.  More information about the DSS Organization and prior cases can be found here.  

DSS Case Submissions for the 93rd AANP Annual Meeting:

The Diagnostic Slide Session, moderated by Dr. Caterina Giannini, will be held on Saturday June 10, 2017 at 8:00 PM. Case submissions must be submitted before January 21, 2017. Contributors will be notified of the presentation decisions in early February. 

How to Submit a Case:

Please submit the following to Dr. Caterina Giannini:

  • Brief clinical summary and key diagnostic points outlined in short PowerPoint or Word document
  • Single representative H&E stained slide
  • One unstained slide sent via mail

Please let the moderator know if the submitted case has sufficient tissue to prepare glass slides for the “glass slide boxes.” Small biopsies of interest are also welcome for consideration and will be posted using virtual microscopy.
