The long 10 months of clinical rotations have finally come to a close. I have learned more in this short time than I ever imagined, and am so thankful for the experience!

I have happily accepted a full-time position at Barnes Jewish Hospital as their newest Pathologists' Assistant. You just can't get rid of me, BJH! #pathassist #pathologistsassistant #thismastersdegreeaboutkilledme

Check out this tattoo @badluckjenn (a fellow PA) is sporting. That's some serious love for our job, & pretty amazing artwork, too! 'Cause if you're going to get a heart tattoo, an anatomically correct one is the obvious "right" way to go--Especially if you're a Pathologists' Assistant. πŸ˜‰ ❀️#heart #hearttattoo #pathology #pathassist

This photo shows an example of something we would receive in surgical pathology labeled "products of conception" also known as a miscarriage.
The fetus is still in the sac is grows in called the embryonic sac. This fetus is about 9 weeks gestation. The fetus has clear arm and leg buds. It the head is still rounding out. The eye can be seen. It is not clear from this photo there is any evidence of fetal anomalies, although most early miscarriages are indicative of a chromosomal defect. In pathology, we confirm presence of an intrauterine pregnancy and we also look to see if we can tell what happened (either a problem with the baby or a problem with the placenta). Lots of times we can't tell. That's where genetics comes in. In the past genetics had to be performed on fresh tissue, meaning tissue that was fresh out of the body and not placed in some kind of preservative. That is sometimes an issue in the hospital. Let's say it's a small community hospital and a woman has a miscarriage on Friday night and pathology is closed until Monday morning. Or, a new nurse accidentally places the miscarriage in formalin and says oops I didn't know pathology needed it fresh. (Trust me this stuff happens) Now, the testing can be done on tissue that is in the preservative. Or can be done after the fact if the doctor forgot to order it. Genetic testing can give more answers to families who are going to try again to have a baby. βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–

These are different stains that can be performed on brain tissue. Depending on what the pathologist is looking for will determine which stain they order. These are examples done by a histo tech student.

PKD! I don't know the back story to this case.

Kidneys removed for a disease called Polycystic Kidney Disease or PKD. These kidneys were 16 pounds each!!!! A normal kidney only weighs about a third of a pound and is about the size of your fist. These kidneys are huge and completely taken over by large cysts. The kidneys no longer worked and the patient was on dialysis before receiving a kidney transplant. This disease is genetic and caused by an autosomal dominant trait meaning that if one parent carries the gene, there is a 50% chance the child will get the disease. This disease produces multiple cysts in the kidneys, but multiple cysts can occur in other organs like the liver too. βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–

"Ventricular!!"

Here's how a left ventricular aneurysm reconstructive surgery or repair looks like, notice the repaired apex after an aneurysmectomy!
A ventricular aneurysm happens on the background of an acute myocardial infarction (MI) and is one the most feared and lethal complications.
It develops in rare cases anywhere between 5 days to three months after the infarction and presents with symptoms of decompensated heart failure.
The wall of a true LV aneurysm is thinner than the wall of the rest of the left ventricle and is usually composed of fibrous tissue (scar) as well as necrotic muscle, sometimes mixed with viable myocardium.
When the ventricular wall is transformed into scar tissue, it becomes an akinetic, non-functioning portion of the heart wall with lost contractile tissue.
A repair or reconstruction allows the surgeon to remove the scarred, dead area of heart tissue and/or the aneurysm and return the left ventricle to a more normal shape. βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–

Breast cancer with involvement of the skin. This patient originally presented in 2007 for a routine mammogram. She had an area of microcalcifications suspicious for malignancy, biopsy recommended. The patient elected to not have a biopsy and agreed to return for another mammogram in 6 months to 1 year. Unfortunately, the patient was not seen again until 6/2017 when she presented with a large (10cm) palpable mass and the skin involvement shown here. The patient chose to have a radical mastectomy with an axillary dissection.

Here you see a "Fusion Cage Installation!!" The screw is a Pedicle Screw which is inserted into the vertebrae...the "U" shape at top will connect the "steel rods" to build the cage!!

Rectal foreign body: Dildo
I have received these in pathology multiple times in my career. With each item we receive in pathology we have to produce a report or a "gross description" of the item we receive. Rental foriehn bodies can be pretty awkward to describe, but in this case it is what it is-a dildo. This one is large with an attached scrotum. In theory, the wide base should prevent accidents like this from happening. Unfortunately the scrotal base got sucked up into the rectum as well and this could not be manually extracted in the emergency room. This means the patient required surgery for removal.
