    Dr Susanna Mcrae

    I spent my early years in Toronto and attended McGill University to complete my undergraduate degree. I completed medical school at the University of Toronto, and during this time developed an interest in pursuing pathology as a specialty. My love of the west coast combined with my desire to become a pathologist led me to complete my medical residency in Vancouver. During residency I was exposed to renal pathology and decided to explore it further through completing a one year fellowship at Foothills Hospital in Calgary. I returned to Vancouver in 2017 to become a member of the pathology staff at St. Paul’s Hospital.

Podocyte Involuting Glomerulopathy (PIG) presented by Dr. Susanna Mcrae.

The presentation will go over an interesting and rare case of Podocyte Infolding Glomerulopathy (PIG) that was diagnosed at our institution, as well as the many ancillary tests that went into helping us get to the diagnosis. At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the main features of Podocyte Infolding Glomerulopathy
  2. Differentiate between PIG and its mimickers

The Many Faces Of Dysproteinemia-related Renal Diseases presented by Dr. Tiffany Shao:

The session will provide an overview of disproteinemia-related renal diseases with the presentation of an interesting case and discussion on some specific entities of disproteinemia-related renal diseases. At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe main diagnostic morphologic findings of the presented case and related entities.
  2. Correlate the pathologic features with underlying potential pathophysiological mechanisms of these entities
  3. Correlate relevant clinical, laboratory and serologic findings with the entities described.
  4. Highlight any ancillary techniques or other extra renal abnormalities associated with the entities described.
