Venue: Seminar Room, 10/F New Wing, Kwong Wah Hospital
Time: Bimonthly
the first Tuesday of the month (usually) at 5.30-7.00 pm

The Neuropathology Slide Club was established in 1990 with the aim of providing a forum where pathologists with a special interest in neuropathology could meet to share their experience and discuss unusual and educational cases.

Meetings are held every two to three months. Approximately two weeks before a meeting each member sends slides out to the group allowing everyone time to review the sections beforehand. If there are insufficient slides for discussion the meeting is deferred for a month. Slides submitted may be surgical or post-mortem specimens and include rare lesions, lesions with unusual histological features or unusual presentation and lesions of uncertain nature where other members are asked for their opinions.

At each meeting members take turn to demonstrate their submitted cases with full clinical history, H&E sections and, where indicated, smears, special stains, immunohistochemical profile, electron microscopy findings and journal references. At present we use a multihead microscope although if more people attend an overhead projecting microscope is also available.
