Course Director POLA: LTC Paul Facemire facemirep@hotmail.com
Local Host: Dr. Angela Brice - abrice@upenn.edu
Description:
This course is designed primarily for veterinarians and other allied scientists who are responsible for the recognition and interpretation of lesions in laboratory animals. It is intended to help attendees interpret spontaneous diseases which might affect experimental result, or alter the health of laboratory animals. Pathology will receive major emphasis in the course, but other features of diseases such as etiology, diagnosis, and control will also be given attention. The course will encompass a wide range of diseases including infectious, neoplastic, iatrogenic, nutritional, and metabolic conditions in a variety of laboratory animals species. The major objective of this course is to review the pathology and, where appropriate, the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and control of infectious, neoplastic, iatrogenic, nutritional, and metabolic diseases of laboratory animals. At the completion of this course, attendees will be able to better recognize and interpret conditions which may affect experimental results or alter the health of laboratory animals.

Duration: 1 day(s)
Location: San Antonio Rivercenter Hotel San Antonio, TX

A majority of the session will be comprised of presentations on Mammary Tumors. This discussion will emphasize those criteria that are important in establishing a definitive diagnosis, including criteria of malignancy and grading of mammary tumors. Diseases of the teat will focus on neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases that may be encountered in veterinary diagnostic pathology. Finally, difficult cases will be discussed; attendees will have an opportunity to review these cases before the workshop.
