A/Prof Norman Firth

Clinicopathological case presentations: Should I remember this stuff?

The American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology and International Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathologists traditionally end their conferences with a clinicopathological conference where one presenter (usually a trainee) armed with a photo or two and a couple of facts of the case presents a discussion on differential diagnosis followed by the pathologist involved in the case (armed with all the facts) presenting the actual diagnosis.  Is this an exercise in stamp collecting or is there value in reminding clinicians of all these pathological conditions?  There is always the next patient to step through the surgery door after all.
