Dear Sir / Madam,

we would like to invite you to the 12th European Congress on Digital Pathology, previously kwown as European Congress on Telepathology and International Congress on Virtual Microscopy, to be held in Paris, France from 18 to 21 June 2014.

Pathology switch from analogue to digital is at the centre of the Congress, as shown in the agenda below. This congress represents a great chance to learn about latest and future innovations and we warmly invite you, your colleagues and partners to attend this biennial European event with participants from all over the world.

This edition of the Congress is organized under the presidence of Catherine Guettier SFP (French Society of Pathology), honorary president, Etienne Martin
with the contribution of ADICAP (Association for Developing Informatics in Cytology and Anatomic Pathology), Frédérique Capron and GFHC (French Group for Cellular Haematology), Xavier Troussard.


Abstracts submission deadline: 20 January 2014

- Contributors are invited to submit an abstract (max. 400 words) written in English for oral and poster presentations on all research fields related to digital pathology, telepathology, image analysis. Specific topics include (and are not limited to) the topics from the provisional agenda underneath.

- Submission should be done electronically at the following link: before 20 January 2014

- In addition, contributors who also aim at individually Pubmed indexed articles shall submit an extended abstract (less than 1500 words). Selected articles will be published either in "Diagnostic Pathology" (editor-in-chief Klaus Kayser, co-chairs Catherine Bor, Philippe Camparo and Myriam Oger) or for computer science oriented articles in the "Computerized Medical Imaging and Graphics" Elsevier journal (editor-in-chief Daniel Racoceanu, co-chair Philippe Belhomme)

NEW! Pecha kucha - a great opportunity for young scientists and creative senior researchers!
Pecha kucha is a special form for very dynamic and exciting presentations. You will have the chance to present your topic/idea/projects (no limits!) for discussion, idea mining and potential collaborators.
The rules of Pecha kucha are very simple: you have 20 slides, for each slide exactly 20 seconds to speak (for the complete presentation 6 min 40 sec). For this session maximal seven words per slide are allowed, you have to use images, figures and diagrams to present you scientific topic, question, idea and/or opinion. This strict format keeps presentations creative, concise and fast-paced and avoids the "Powerpoint-Death"Â (more details:
Please send only your name and title of the Pecha kucha-Presentation to: - no abstracts are necessary.

HPV&HIV en lesiones de ano

Human papillomavirus genotypes in human immunodeficiency virus-positive patients with anal pathology in Madrid, Spain.

Benjamín García-Espinosa, Ernesto Moro-Rodríguez and Emilio Álvarez-Fernández

Background: We studied anal specimens to determine the distribution of human papillomavirus (HPV) genotypes and co-infection occurrence. This information will contribute to the knowledge of HPV genotype distributions and provide an estimate of the prevalence of different oncogenic HPV genotypes found in patients in Madrid (Spain). Methods: We studied a total of 82 anal biopsies from the Hospital General Universitario Gregorio Marañón of Madrid. These included 4 specimens with benign lesions, 52 specimens with low-grade anal squamous intraepithelial lesion, 24 specimens with high-grade anal squamous intraepithelial lesions and 2 specimens with invasive anal carcinoma. HPV genotyping was performed with PCR amplification and reverse dot blot hybridization. Results: We detected 33 different HPV genotypes, including 16 HPVs associated with a high risk of carcinogenesis, 3 HPVs associated with a highly likely risk of carcinogenesis and 14 HPVs associated with a low-risk of carcinogenesis. In two specimens, an uncharacterized HPV genotype was detected. The most frequent HPV genotypes found were HPV-16 (10.3%; 95% CI: 6.6%-15.1%), HPV-52 (8.5%; 95% CI: 5.2%-13%) and HPV-43/44 (7.6%; 95% CI: 4.5%-11.9%). HPV-18 was only detected in 0.9% (95% CI: 0.1%-3.2%) of the total viruses detected in all lesions. HPV co-infections were found in 83.9% of all types of lesions. The majority of cases (90.2%) were concomitantly infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Conclusion: The prevalence of high-risk carcinogenic genotypes in anal pathological samples was remarkable. Therefore, further studies that include a greater number of samples, particularly invasive carcinoma cases are needed to evaluate the potential influence of these HPV genotypes in the appearance of anal carcinomas. Also, the influence of other accompanying infections should be evaluated clarify the appearance of this type of carcinoma.

Human papillomavirus-associated oral intraepithelial neoplasia: Modern Pathology

Human papillomavirus-associated oral intraepithelial neoplasia.

Sook-Bin Woo, Emma C Cashman and Mark A Lerman

Abstact: This study evaluated an unusual subset of oral epithelial dysplasia for the presence of transcriptionally active high-risk HPV subtypes and to further characterize the histological criteria for this condition. There were 20 cases diagnosed as epithelial dysplasia with marked apoptosis of the anterior oral cavity. Clinical and follow-up data were collected and histopathological features were documented. Immunoperoxidase studies were performed for p16 and in situ hybridization studies were performed for low- and high-risk HPV sub-types. Gender- and site-matched controls of conventional moderate-to-severe oral epithelial dysplasia were similarly evaluated using immunoperoxidase studies for p16 and in situ hybridization; the number of apoptotic cells for study and control cases was counted at two different tissue sites. There were 17 men and 3 women with a median age of 56 years. Seventeen lesions were described as white and five were described as rough or papillary. Thirteen were located on the lateral or ventral tongue, some extending onto the floor of the mouth. Epithelial hyperplasia with marked karyorrhexis and apoptosis were present in all the cases, along with features of conventional oral epithelial dysplasia. A statistically significant number of apoptotic cells were identified in the study cases when compared with controls (P>0.0001). Twenty cases were positive for high-risk HPV by in situ hybridization and all 19 nineteen cases evaluated for p16 demonstrated overexpression. Two patients were diagnosed with squamous cell carcinomas and one patient developed recurrent disease. We report a subset of oral epithelial dysplasia that occurs mostly in adult men on the ventral or lateral tongue and is positive for high-risk HPV and for p16. We propose use of the term ‘HPV-associated Oral Intraepithelial Neoplasia’ to characterize these lesions of the oral cavity for consistency in nomenclature with HPV-associated lesions of the lower anogenital tract. One case recurred and one developed invasive cancer.

11. november 2013

EUROPALS pathology test

To all members of the ESP

From November 25th we offer the 2013 EUROPALS pathology test intended for trainees (but pathologists are free to participate as many as are interested). The test consists of 100 questions, partly straight multiple choice questions, partly still image based and partly virtual slide based, and extended matching questions.

La Declaración de la sociedad civil propuesta por buena parte del conjunto de organizaciones internacionales relacionadas con la familia incluye los contenidos básicos de las resoluciones de Naciones Unidas sobre el Año Internacional de la Familia, así como las principales recomendaciones de los distintos Encuentros de Expertos, en especial el Europeo que hemos organizado en Bruselas. Buscamos para ella la adhesión de cuantos políticos, académicos y representantes de ONGs podamos reunir, de manera que pueda presentarse junto a las demás organizaciones internacionales en la Comisión de Desarrollo Social que tendrá lugar en febrero de 2014. Esperamos también que su contenido pueda formar parte de una resolución de la Asamblea General de NN UU con ocasión de este Aniversario.
