A consultant pathologist from National Kidney and Transplant Institute was invited to present a case in the Diagnostic Soft Tissue Sarcoma Histopathology Workshop held at Sheraton Seoul D Cube City Hotel, Seoul, South Korea, January 18, 2014 .

Dr. Valerie Anne T. Tesoro, head of Hematology and Transfusion Medicine and an active anatomic pathologist, presented a case of Sarcomatoid Renal Cell Carcinoma to an audience consisting of sarcoma experts from countries across the Asia Pacific Region.

The workshop, organized by GlaxoSmithKline, was chaired and facilitated by Dr. Angelo Paolo Dei Tos, a soft tissue sarcoma expert based from General Hospital of Treviso, Italy. The workshop centered on the evolving classification of soft tissue tumours based on the recently-published 2013 WHO classification Tumors of Soft Tissue and Bone.

Challenging cases from participating countries, as well as cases from the slide library of Dr. Dei Tos were discussed. The role of immunohistochemistry studies and the emerging use of molecular techniques in the diagnosis of soft tissue sarcomas were likewise highlighted.

“It is good that we gather once in a while to discuss these cases. It is only through events like these that we get to see and familiarize ourselves with these rare tumors”, said a pathologist from New Zealand.

Dr. Mark Anthony C. Turingan, a second year pathology resident of NKTI, also participated in the said workshop.
