(2015 Diagnostic Slide Session presenters with Dr. Giannini in center)

The Diagnostic slide session, moderated by Dr. Caterina Giannini, is held on Saturday evening of the annual meeting of the American Association of Neuropathologists, generally starting at 8:00 pm and ending after the last case at approximately 10:30 pm.

Cases are submitted to the moderator, Dr. Caterina Giannini, for consideration for the Diagnostic Slide Session.  Please provide the following information for consideration:

  • Brief clinical summary and key diagnostic points, emailed in a short PowerPoint or Word document
  • A single representative H&E stained slide and one unstained slide sent via mail to the address below
  • Whether the 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.

This year in addition to the O.T. Bailey-Helena Riggs Award for Best Diagnostic Slide Session Case presented by a trainee, we will be looking for the Best Neurodegenerative Case Presented at the 2018 Diagnostic Slide Session.  Please also consider submitting your neurodegenerative disease cases!

All members of the American Association of Neuropathologists are eligible to submit cases for consideration for inclusion in next year's program.
