Lymph Node Cytology

Lymph Node Cytology – EFCS Joint Webinar of the Hellenic and the Croatian Societies of Clinical Societies, March 18, 2022

New on the ASC Education Website – Molecular Cytopathology Workshop

This online course provides organ-specific detailed molecular training, as well as general teaching on molecular assays and test selection. The course will empower cytopathologists to serve as experts in molecular cytopathology for both test selection and results interpretation.


In addition, following this course, cytopathologists can serve as an essential resource to guide oncologists, proceduralists, and surgeons on test utilization and interpretation.

ECC 2023 – 44th European Congress of Cytology, Budapest 1-4 October 2023

Dear Colleagues,We would like to inform you that the 44th European Congress of Cytology will be held in Budapest, Hungary, from 1-4 October 2023.

The homepage of the congress is already active:

You are kindly invited to visit the homepage and sign up for the newsletter. We also request you to distribute the information among your members.The two leading mottos of the conference are „combined intelligence” and „melting point”.“The diagnosis by aspiration is as reliable as the combined intelligence of the clinician and pathologist makes it.” (Stewart, 1933). This statement is still true in the 21th century, in the century of data based combined natural and even artificial intelligence.The melting point of a substance is the temperature at which a solid and liquid phase may coexist in equilibrium. It is desirable the reach this equilibrium of different ideas and thoughts in all facets of cytopathology. The Congresses main purpose in finding the acceptable equilibria points following discussions, debates during sessions, slide seminars, Companion Meetings and every official and private exchange of thoughts – using everywhere the combined intelligence.By this letter we would like to invite all member countries to hold Companion Meetings at the congress.For the Companion Meetings the congress offers:A time slot of 45-60 minutes.A breakout room for 50-100 PAX equipped with general conference audio-visual technique (no microscopes).Advertising the meeting in the Scientific Program based on the information from the “Companion” on the website and in Final Program (on- and/or off-line)The Companions are kindly requested to:Inform us that they would like to organize a meeting, preferably before 30 September 2022.Compile the scientific contents of the meeting.Arrange for the registration of all speakers.We look forward to hearing from you soon and meeting you in Budapest next year.Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at

21st International Congress of Cytology and 70th Annual Scientific Meeting


You are invited to submit abstracts for Platform and Poster Presentations for the jointly held 21st International Congress of Cytology and 70th Annual Scientific Meeting to be held,
Abstracts may be based on cytologic techniques, clinical cytology or basic cytology research.

Cases are not accepted.

For more information click here.

Submission Deadline is Monday, May 2, 2022


The “Worldvision Cytopathology Contest” (WCC) is back and will be held during the joint meetings of the 21st International Congress of Cytology (ICC) and the ASC 70th Annual Scientific Meeting from November 15-20, 2022 at the Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor, Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

WCC offers the opportunity to exchange scientific knowledge and goodwill in a unique cytopathology competition and an award to the winner at joint meeting. Those competing in the WCC will present an interesting cytopathology case and offer practical take-home points and/or new highlights on innovations in cytomorphology or ancillary techniques. 

The contest is open to:

• medical students
• pathology residents
• cytopathology fellows
• cytotechnology students
• junior pathologists or cytotechnologists within one year of completion of training

Deadline for application is May 16, 2022.
