CALL FOR CHALLENGING POLYPOSIS CASES
The November webinar, hosted by the CGA-IGC Education Committee, will feature a case-based session, discussing the diagnosis and management of challenging polyposis cases.
We welcome case submissions from CGA members. If you or your colleagues have an interesting or challenging polyposis case, we encourage you to submit it. Selected cases will be presented during the webinar and discussed by expert panelists.
Case descriptions should be a maximum of one paragraph. If you have a pedigree you may include it with your case description. Please be sure to remove all protected health information (PHI).
Please submit your case descriptions by email to email@example.com.
