Wed, Aug, 15th, 2018

Dear colleagues,

The International Society for the Study of Vascular anomalies (ISSVA) is a multidisciplinary international scientific society. Its membership is comprised of dedicated scientists and physicians (dermatologists, surgeons, pediatricians, radiologists and interventional radiologists, oncologists, pathologists...).

The 2018 biannual ISSVA congress ( will be held in Amsterdam (May 29 - June 2).

May 29 afternoon is dedicated to specialities advanced workshops/advanced courses, one of them dedicated to the pathology of vascular anomalies, with talks from some of the best specialists of the field, focused on new developments of pathological diagnosis and clinicopathological correlations of some recently, or less recently, described lesions along with precirculated digital slides from cases for diagnosis and discussion.

The ISSVA recently decided to open her pre-congress advanced workshops to colleagues non-attending the main ISSVA meeting and we are sure some of the IPPA members could be interested in participating to this pathology workshop. Number of seats for this course is limited to 40.

Details of the workshop and registration can be found at:
