Textbook Pathology Outlines: Stains CDX2

Erem, AS, Hartley, C.

This is the second project that I have worked on where we are providing content for the Pathology Outlines website.

A Rare Case of Multiple Primary Lung Cancers in a Single Patient

Erem, A.S., Cecchini M. J., Boland, J.M.

This is an exciting project that is supervised by Mayo Clinic, Rochester, and Western University, Ontario.

In this study, we will detail a case of Multiple Primary Lung Cancers in one female patient.
One of the more difficult aspects when evaluating a patient's tumor staging, prognosis, and treatment strategy is whether metastasis has occurred, a diagnosis made all the more difficult when MPLC are suspected.
