In the evolving world of
genetically based diagnosis, some people view many of the traditional
phenotypic observations as simply a primitive
form of gene expression analysis.
Pathology Pattern Reviews 116:S1-140 Dec 2001
Oh my. Has it all come to
A New Year and New
First things first. On behalf of the entire
Society, I wish to congratulate and thank Ron Jaffe for completing a very
successful presidency. His implemented his goals through visionary
leadership. His extension our Society’s expertise and good will to our
less advantaged colleagues and his strong support of the birthing of the
“perinatal group” are but two highlights of Ron’s remarkable
Great appreciation from all of our
membership is due to our immediate past council members as well as chairs
and members of our committees for their diligence, time and contributions
in support of the Society’s activities during the past year.
Additionally, thanks in advance to the new members of each of these bodies
for the efforts that I know will be forthcoming from them during the
coming year. And not least, the success of the Spring meeting in Chicago
confirmed the wisdom of cementing the Society’s relationship with the
USCAP and its management staff.
What’s Next? Ron noted in the last
newsletter that “A President of the Society, then, has limited
opportunity for the grand and sweeping gesture. There may be time to pick
a theme and to try and implement an enduring program.” Recognizing this
limitation, it strikes me that the increasingly important overlap of
pediatric and forensic pathology provides another opportunity for our
Society. Given the significant differences in training requirements of
these two disciplines, forensic pathologists experience considerable gaps
in expertise in pediatric disorders, such as congenital heart disease or
metabolic disorders. For example, pediatric cardiologists and surgeons may
well desire that the medical examiner consult with a pediatric pathologist
regarding interpretation of cardiac pathology and the consequences of
surgical intervention. The opposite also occurs, but surely less commonly.
Nevertheless, hospital-based pediatric pathologists must be aware of
findings in surgicals and autopsies that may have forensic importance and,
therefore, be reportable to the local medical examiner. In such instances,
diagnosis and case disposition are likely to be more accurate when
pediatric and forensic pathologists collaborate. Some of our members
already find professional satisfaction from participation in medicolegal
cases. But is our Society as a whole doing enough? Members of our Society
possess the world’s greatest body of expertise and experience in
diseases and disorders of the fetus, newborn, child, and placenta. We are
in the best position to assist medical examiners in cases wherein such
knowledge is advantageous to reaching an accurate diagnosis. Consequently,
clinicians, families and the legal community are best served by our
In the continuing spirit of Ron’s
outreach goals, it is my hope that members of our Society will make
themselves even more available to the forensic community. We have a
professional responsibility to restore, sustain and enhance the lives of
children. This includes our roles not only in the hospital, but also in
the community at large. It is especially important that we reach into the
medicolegal sphere where such relationships have not existed previously.
It is my hope that those pediatric pathologists interested in forensic
medicine will submit their abstracts and manuscripts to our Society
meetings and to Pediatric and Developmental Pathology; that our
members will actively participate in Child Death Review Teams; and that
our members will accept invitations to present at scientific meetings
sponsored by forensic societies, such as the National Association of
Medical Examiners. It is also important that our members provide competent
expert testimony in civil litigation and criminal prosecutions to offset
irresponsible testimony from physicians seeking only remunerative gain.
Finally, to gain some perspective of our members’ preparation and
participation in medicolegal pediatric pathology, I am requesting that
Society members complete and return the brief survey that is posted on the
SPP website and was previously posted
on the pedpath listserv. I will share the results with the Society at a
for Pediatric Pathology Annual Business Meeting Minutes

The Secretary-Treasurer reported on the
membership status and the financial position of the Society. At year-end
2001, there were a total of 538 SPP members, with 380 regular, 37 junior,
48 affiliate, 1 honorary, 33 emeritus and 39 life members. As of January
1, 1998, all Society restricted and unrestricted funds were transferred
into mutual fund holdings managed by Salomon Smith Barney. As of December
31, 2001 the SPP had total assets of $461,292, with $343,273 in restricted
funds (Vawter, Lotte Strauss, Young Investigator), $107,246 in
unrestricted general funds, $10,773 in the checking/savings account. The
Fund for Endowment for Research in Pediatric Pathology (FERRP), also known
as the Young Investigator Fund, value decreased in value from $180,016 in
2000 to the current value of $166,548; with the addition of $5300 in cash
and $2155 in stock donations received. The Lotte Strauss Fund decreased in
value from $180,933 in 2000 to the current value of $145,522. The Vawter
Fund value was essentially unchanged from $31,478 in 2000 to the current
value of $31,203; with additional funding received from the Vawter family.
The financial status of the SPP at year-end 2001 revealed no deficit. The
year 2002 budget, approved in September 2001, is a projected deficit
budget. The transition to the new management office at the USCAP office is

Old Business: None.
New Business: As a part of the SPP Outreach initiative
started by Dr. Jaffe, Dr. Rudo Makunike from Zimbabwe gave a presentation
outlining some of the ways in which the SPP could help African countries.
After sincerely thanking Dr. Jaffe and the SPP, Dr. Makunike showed many
beautiful pictures taken in Zimbabwe. She noted that Zimbabwe is a
developing country, which has gone from the traditional healer, practiced
in a hut to a female histopathologist practicing in a fairly modern
setting. She outlined areas in which the SPP can help:
- Human Resources:
Hands on technical expertise
Zimbabwe has a population of 5 million with
5 pathologists. A training program is now in place in Zimbabwe, however
technical expertise is greatly needed, as is outside consultation for
difficult cases. No charge for this service would be quite helpful.
Consumables include all supplies needed to
complete surgical and autopsy pathology, with antibodies for
immunohistochemistry being quite in demand. Equipment, including
microscopes, double headed scopes and AV equipment for teaching are also
Journals, even though months old, are a
valuable asset for teaching and education. Excess journals and books from
pathology departments would be welcome. In the arena of research, Zimbabwe
has something to offer, with lots of material available for research.
Dr. Makunike commented on the challenges of
HIV/AIDS in Africa, with increased workload and changing pathology
diagnoses. She invited all members to come to Zimbabwe for scientific
and/or vacation reasons.
Dr. Jaffe thanked Dr. Makunike for her
excellent presentation and noted that Dr. Benjamin and the ad hoc
committee on international outreach, with the Liaison committee will
coordinate the efforts of the Society.
Announcement of upcoming meetings:
Dr. Beverly Rogers invited all members to
the SPP interim meeting in Dallas, Texas, Sept. 27-29, 2002, for barbecue,
fun, and armadillo races.
Dr. David Witte reminded all members that
the SPP interim meeting in 2003 will be held in Cincinnati, Ohio, Oct. 18,
2003, in conjunction with the tall stacks weekend.
The next SPP annual meeting will be in
Washington, D.C., March 22-23, 2003.
The next I.A.P. Australian Division Meeting
will be held Oct 10-15, 2004.
Outgoing councilor, Dr. Glenn Taylor,
escorted incoming President, Dr. Henry Krous to the podium. Dr. Krous
thanked Dr. Jaffe for all of his hard work for the Society and presented
him with a carved plaque.
There being no further business, the
meeting was adjourned.
Presented at the Chicago Meeting
Jeffrey Goldstein, Chair,
At the SPP’s annual meeting in Chicago,
four individuals were recognized for meritorious scientific efforts. The
Lotte Strauss Prize, which is awarded annually to the author of the best
paper published on a subject germane to pediatric pathology in the
preceding year by an individual 40 years of age or younger, was awarded to
Dr. Jean-Christophe Fournet. Dr. Fournet, formerly at Necker-Enfants
Malades in Paris, is currently an Invited Assistant Professor at the
Faculty of Medicine of the University of Montreal and staff Pediatric
Pathologist at Hopital Sainte-Justine,
Montreal, Quebec. He received the Strauss Prize as first author of the
paper: Unbalanced Expression of 11p15 Imprinted Genes in Focal Forms of
Congenital Hyperinsulinism. Association with a Reduction to Homozygosity
of a Mutation in ABCC8 or KCNJ11, published in the American Journal of
Pathology, 2001; 158:2177. His co-authors were Drs. Mayaud, de Lonlay,
Gross-Morand, Verkarre, Castanet, Devillers, Rahier, Brunelle, Robert,
Nihoul-Fekete, Saudubray and Junien. Dr. Fournet receives a $1000 (U.S.)
honorarium, and an expense paid trip to the Society’s interim meeting in
September in Dallas, where he will present his research to those in
attendance. Congratulations to Dr. Fournet and his co-workers. We are
looking forward to his lecture.
The Gordon F. Vawter Pathologist in
Training Award was awarded to Mr. Torin D. Shear, a medical student
at University of Missouri, for work done as a summer extern at St. Jude
Children’s Research Hospital. His abstract was titled:
Pathologic Classification and p53 Expression in Wilms Tumor: A
Preliminary Study. Mr. Shear’s co-authors were Drs. Dome, Billups
and Hill. Congratulations to Mr. Shear, who should understand that in
accepting this award the Society expects that he will eventually become a
pathologist in training, preferably pursuing a career in pediatric
The Harry B. Neustein Award for use of new
or novel technology was presented to Drs. Kenichi Harada and Anirban
Maitra. Dr. Harada is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of
Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas Hamon Center for Therapeutic
Oncology Research and Dr. Maitra, formerly a resident and pediatric
pathology fellow at UT Southwestern, is completing a GI pathology
fellowship at Johns Hopkins. Their paper was titled Promoter
Methylation of CASPASE-8 and RASSF1A is a Common Event in Solid Tumors of
Children. Other co-authors were Drs. Toyooka, Mastrangelo, Timmons,
Tomlinson and Gazdar. Congratulations
to Drs. Harada, Maitra and their co-authors. Dr. Maitra has now swept the
SPP’s awards having previously received the Vawter and Strauss awards,
the first individual to achieve such distinction.
A summary of the Survey of the Pediatric
Pathology Fellowship Programs will be posted on the SPP
website. Paul Dickman, a member of the Fellowship Committee, conducted
the survey. Comments are welcome.
The list of Pediatric Pathology Fellowships
posted on the SPP website is being updated. Please inform Alba
Greco or Halit Pinar if the
information about your program is not accurate and of any changes or
update that you want make.
The journal has a new look from her new
editor, sporting a color photograph on the front page and three new
sections. The new sections include: PDP Insights (short editorial pieces
about articles in the issue), Context articles (still to come - editorial
commentaries addressing one of the featured articles), and a CPC, which
will be coordinated by a pediatrician. Lisa DeLizio is the new editorial
assistant, having taken over the office recently from the previous
editorial assistant. Ms. DeLizio brings years of experience to the
journal, having been the managing editor for Pediatric Research for
several years. I believe you will begin to see the touch of our new editor
and managing editor as we progress throughout the exciting new year. Some
really exceptional news is that the number of submissions to the journal
has increased and the all-important Impact Factor has doubled. This means
that our Impact Factor is now 0.723, which is quite respectable for a
journal that is only 4 years old. It will only increase, which will make
our journal even more attractive to prospective contributors. You need to
send articles to this journal. And may I suggest that when you write an
article, regardless of where you submit it, it would helpful if you cited
relevant articles from PDP. This is how the Impact Factor is determined.
We have a lot of energy behind this important project, so let’s keep it
going. Dr. Reyes-Múgica thanks all of the reviewers for their unheralded
time. He is always looking for additional committed individuals who are
willing to provide well-researched reviews in a timely manner. If he asks
you for the names of good reviewers, please reply thoughtfully. I would
like to thank Dr. Reyes-Múgica for the time, energy, and diplomatic
talent he has brought to the very tough job of editor-in-chief. I have
great confidence that the journal will flourish under his direction and we
will be in for some really good times to come.
Drs. Dimmick and Singer have obtained
articles for the year 2002, which will continue the topic of embryogenesis.
Look for articles on renal tract malformations, the enteric nervous
system, molecular embryogenesis of the heart, and embryogenesis of the
central nervous system. In conjunction with Dr. Collins, they will be
compiling a bound volume related to GI pathology.
The website is as you see it - timely,
informative, and well constructed. The relationship between our editor,
Hal Pinar, and webmaster, Ricky Lark, is fluid and the groundwork is set
to make the website even more useful. Dr. Pinar is discussing online
abstract submissions with Jim Crimmins of our central office.
I would like to end with a note of
appreciation for two people. The first is Pat O’Shea, who is no longer
with us in body but always in spirit. Pat had already begun work to take
over the Publications Committee and was working on information for the
spring Committee meeting until immediately prior to her untimely death.
She has been a good friend, and a colleague whom I have respected for many
years. The new Chair of the Publications Committee will be Steve Qualman
beginning at the fall meeting, 2002. Dr. Qualman brings years of
experience to the Publications Committee, initially as a member of the
Committee and then as a participant in a small working group about issues
related to the journal. I appreciate the job he is about to do.
Gareth Jevon for Ted Pysher
At the Annual Meeting
in Chicago the Practice Committee considered a position paper regarding
consent for the perinatal and pediatric autopsy. The paper addresses the
manner in which consent is obtained, consent to the extent/limits of the
examination, subsequent tissue retention, and its use for research
purposes. Council has agreed to consider this paper following amendments
to the draft.
Enrollment in the Pediatric Pathology case
study survey has declined greatly. The committee reviewed factors that may
be contributory, especially the results of the slide survey evaluations.
It was decided to investigate the possibility of developing the survey
into a proficiency test. Groups of previous cases will be available on a
disc; old cases will be accessible through the SPP website for educational
The Practice Committee has completed a
pilot survey of the staffing and activities of pediatric pathologists
practicing in a small group of freestanding children's hospitals. A less
extensive questionnaire is now available. Representatives from those
institutions who wish to contribute to the survey should contact Dr.
Gareth Jevon at firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com> who will
distribute the document via e-mail. Members are encouraged to participate
in this benchmarking activity as individuals, as well, especially those
pediatric pathologists who provide expertise in mixed practices or adult
oriented groups/hospitals. This simplified survey is patterned after one
conducted by the College of American Pathologists (CAP).
Members wishing to comment further on any
of the above matters should contact any committee member, or e-mail
comments to Ted Pysher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jeff Goldstein, Chair
The Education Committee and the entire Society
owe a huge debt of gratitude to Kathleen Patterson for ably chairing the
committee for the last three years and for her tenure as a committee member and
twice-chair of the Workshop/Symposium subcommittee in the years proceeding her
term as chair. Kathy has updated and greatly expanded the Education Committee
manual originally written by Henry Krous, and she is promising one last version
before turning over the reins. Without this document to preserve past records
and guide our operations and procedures, the members of the committee could not
function as well as they do. Her efforts on behalf of Society are greatly
appreciated, and were recognized by Dr. Jaffe who presented her with a
Distinguished Colleague award at the spring meeting.
A brief summary of the committee’s four
subcommittees’ activities follows.
The Society’s eligibility to grant CME credit rests on maintaining its
accreditation with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
Lisa Teot, our CME Coordinator, who contributed many, many hours (not to mention
headaches and nervous tension) preparing for our ACCME survey last fall is to be
congratulated for our receiving Full Accreditation for a four year term. The
requirements to maintain accreditation for our educational activities have
become ever more complex and burdensome, and Lisa has done a tremendous job in
pulling together all of the diverse documentation necessary, as well as trying
to streamline our procedures for maintaining accreditation in the future. We
should all be grateful to Lisa for agreeing to continue to serve in this
capacity for the duration of the next inspection cycle. Thanks to those other
committee members who served as CME monitors for educational programs over the
Cynthia Kaplan completed her term on the committee as the Abstract
subcommittee chairperson, and I would thank Cindy for her contributions. At the
spring meeting, 37 of 52 submitted abstracts were accepted for presentation. The
number of abstracts was down slightly from last spring. Please consider
submitting your abstracts to us and encourage your colleagues and trainees to do
so as well. Web-based abstract submission through USCAP was implemented for the
spring meeting with great success. This enhanced the speed and accuracy of
processing and transmitting the material to reviewers, publishers, etc. On-line
submission will be used for the fall meeting as well, and we anticipate further
benefits by automating this process.
Edith Schmidt, the subcommittee chair, put together an excellent
educational program for this spring meeting, and she also completes her term as
soon as all of the evaluations are tabulated and provided to the CME committee!
Thank you Ede for your service. I would also like to thank Hannah Kinney for
assembling an excellent panel for the symposium in Chicago: Topics in
Pediatric Neuropathology: New Directions, and also Drs. Husain, Parizhskaya
and Liapis, whose workshops were presented for the third and final time at the
recent meeting. Next year’s spring meeting symposium, on Mitochondrial
Diseases moderated by David Witte was approved.
Two new workshops were approved to begin in 2003:
a Dermatopathology workshop presented by Dr. Aliya Husain, from Loyola
University and a vascular tumors and malformations workshop by Dr. Harry
Kozakewich, from Boston Children’s Hospital.
The extramural subcommittee’s role is to focus attention on the SPP’s
educational interactions with other scientific groups and societies. Discussion
regarding using the SPP meeting as a venue for Children’s Oncology Group (COG)
pathology education was favorable, in view of their decision to discontinue
pathology symposia at the COG meetings because of poor attendance by
pathologists. At least one workshop to relevant COG pathology topics will be
offered, and other opportunities may also be developed. Suggestions in this
regard are still welcome. The committee also reviewed and forwarded to Council a
proposal for an SPP sponsored, stand alone Placental and Perinatal Pathology
course, which we hope to develop further over the coming months.
The final program for the fall 2002 Dallas interim meeting and perinatal
symposium were approved, as well as initial proposals for 2003 in Cincinnati,
2004 in Little Rock, and 2005, in Paris France as a joint meeting with the
European Pediatric Pathology Society. An ad hoc liaison planning committee has
been appointed for this meeting, and as soon as dates are finalized we’ll let
everyone know so you can reserve them on your calendar!
The Research Committee made no Young
Investigator Award this year.
