Lymphoid System Cytology

This comprehensive course will give you the basics you need for interpretation of the most common conditions affecting the lymphoid organs (mostly lymph nodes), with a special attention to the diagnostic approach to lymphoma in both dogs and cats. Participants will develop a logical approach to the interpretation of cytological samples from lymphoid organs through a case-based approach. Clinical case challenges and diagnostic algorithms will also be provided to help you understanding the concepts presented and consolidating your knowledge.

Module 1: Sampling techniques, slide staining and submission of cytological samples from lymphoid organs to external laboratories

Module 2: Cytology of the normal lymph node, inflammatory and hyperplastic conditions

Modules 3 – 4: Diagnostic approach to lymphoma  (Introduction, cytology, additional diagnostic techniques)

Module 5: Metastasis to the lymph node

Module 6: Cytology of other lymphoid organs


Vet CPD Online Tutored Courses take approximately 8 hours to complete and can be completed at your own pace and at any time over the course’s 3-week period. There are downloadable course notes and clinical cases to work through, plus – what makes our courses unique – a busy clinical forum where questions and answers are posted and where delegates have access to the instructor for the duration of the course. This always generates some lively discussions and the idea that no one should leave a course with any unanswered questions.

At the end of the course there is a final exam plus a Certificate of Completion for your CPD records.
