    Trevor A. Flood attended the University of Ottawa for both medical school and residency. Following his residency in Anatomic Pathology, he completed a fellowship at Harvard Medical School working at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Genitourinary Pathology. Trevor then returned to Ottawa where he is now an Assistant Professor in Anatomic Pathology with a Genitourinary sub specialization. His research interests relate primarily to identifying morphologic and molecular prognostic features in prostate, kidney, and bladder cancers. Several of his projects have focused on various histologic features recognized in biopsies and/or oncologic resections that ultimately correlate with tumor stage, disease recurrence, and cancer specific mortality. He also has interests in using technology as a tool in anatomic pathology as well as integrating a multidisciplinary approach to genitourinary oncology problems through collaboration with diagnostic radiologists and surgeons alike.

In this session, we will review the common entities, both benign and malignant, that arise in the kidney, testis, bladder, and prostate. The various histologic features will be identified and confirmatory immunohistochemical panels will be discussed. Special attention will be given to recent changes found in the 2022 WHO Classification of Tumours of the Urinary System and Male Genital Organs, as well as newer entities that have entered the GU Pathology realm. 

At the end of the sessions, participants will be able to: 

  • Identify the common entities of the various genitourinary sites.
  • Distinguish between common histologic pitfalls.
  • Select appropriate immunohistochemical markers in the workup of genitourinary entities.
  • Describe some of the updates in the 2022 WHO Classification.
  • Reflect on some newly described lesions of the GU tract.
