  1. Hello!
    In week 392 case 2 the same picture is displayed and repeated five time instead of other pictures from the tumor and immunostains.

  2. Marvelous!!!
    One new week with three cases to learn with your experience and philantropic work !!

    Thank you very much for your endeavor to teach !!

  3. I found some glass slides from the unknown conference in a box from when I did residency there. They only have a four digit number on them. I’d like to search the database to study these slides. Is there a way to search with the slide number?

    1. Hi Dr. Baewer,
      Thanks for your comment. We do not have a searchable public database for the unknowns slides. However, if there are any specific cases that you would like to confirm the diagnosis on, you can provide us with the case number and we can look for you.

    Please clarify.

    1. Hi Ambereen- Thank you for your comment. This mistake has been corrected in the case you mention.
      Johns Hopkins Pathology

  17. A great site. Very very helpful.

    Some minor typing and other mistakes seen.

    Week 269 Case 4 mentions ovarian stroma which should be read as endometrial stroma in my opinion.

    Can mention others too if asked to.


    1. Hi Ambereen– We have corrected Week 269 Case 4 to read ‘endometrial’ after conferring with the author of the case. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Feel free to submit any other suggestions that you have.
      Thank you,
      Johns Hopkins Pathology

  26. Thank you very much for all Pathologia Team of J.H.H, for these two new week 6 cases, there are very interesting
    But I have one big doubt, what´s your explication for understoold the negativity of Congo Red stain at the material of last case of that serie ??
    That material also not stain with Lights chains Kappa or Lambda ??

    Thank you for the feedback

    beste wishes

    1. Hello Josemari,
      Thank you so much for visiting our site, and we are glad you find the cases interesting. The pathogenesis of light chain deposition disease is similar to amyloid light-chain amyloidosis, but the light chain proteins do not form amyloid deposits; the reason for this, at least to our knowledge, is not understood. Thus, the Congo red stain is negative. In this case, nearly all the plasma cells showed kappa restriction, which confirmed the diagnosis. Thanks for your time and take care!
      Tasha Larman

      1. Hello Tasha
        Thank you very much for the comments and explications to my ignorance about the difference between, amyloidosis light chain y the light chain proteins

  27. Hi. I have been using the site for a few months.
    However, there seems to be a problem as a lot of images of many cases are missing. For example the penis and placenta section show barely a few images. Most images in these sections are not accessible

    1. Thank you for your comment. We are in middle of resolving this issue. We will let you know when the issue has been resolved.
      JHU Pathology Web Team

    2. This problem has been resolved. Please let us know if you experience any issues in the future. Thank you.

    1. Hello Mohammad. Week 189 case 2 was indeed missing images, and we’ve resolved this problem. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  29. Hello,

    Great website! Currently, there is a problem with listing of the cases. If I select lung for example, no cases are listed. Please address. Thank you

    1. Thank you for e-mailing us. We are currently looking into this issue and will reply when it’s resolved.

    2. Hello everyone, The Search Cases page should be back up and running. The issue has been addressed and now resolved. So sorry for the inconvenience.

    Thank you very much to the PATOLOGHY TEAM of JHH !!

    1. Hi Yongjie. Thank you for your feedback.
      Is JavaScript turned on in your browser? Viewing images on those cases requires JavaScript and the entire site requires JavaScript to function properly.

      Let us know if you continue to run into problems.

  34. Please label the all immunohistochemistry pictures with the antibody used. I find them of no use if I dont know what is being marked.

    1. This feature is being added to the site. All future immunohistochemistry pictures will be marked.
      Thank you for your input.

    2. This feature is being added to the site. All future immunohistochemistry pictures will be marked.
      Thank you for your input.

  35. Great website upgrade, it’s mobile friendly and very nice looking. My only issue is the quiz based format. Its very tedious to click. I preferred going through a whole list of cases (by organ system), and receiving the answer after each question, rather than after the quiz is done.

    1. Hi CD. The upgrade that you request is in progress.
      Thanks for your feedback.
      Johns Hopkins Pathology

    2. Hi CD,
      This feature has been improved and the cases now require less clicks. We hope that this has helped make the site more useful to you.

      Johns Hopkins Pathology

    1. We’re not finished implementing all the proposed changes yet, but we’re glad to hear that the site updates are making the site more useful to you.
      Johns Hopkins Pathology

  36. Thanks John Hopkins administration for such a wonderful job.
    Thanks also for updating the site so now we can view what have we done so for.
    Please do one more thing like in previous site , there was an option to look at all diagnosis of a unit in a single go which is not possible now.
    Plus please do add frozen sections and cytology cases.
    Dr Samra



  37. Thanks a lot for such a great aid for self study.
    1) i will like to see the option of viewing a case/ list of cases with known diagnosis. it was available on previous site.i
    2) The cases that i have viewed should be displayed in different color, as occurred previously.
    3) please add cytology and selected frozen sections too

  38. I value the cases and the comments. I find them useful for self education and in diagnosis. I miss the facility of searching with a list view of selected results with and without diagnoses visible. Navigation is now less intuitive and more clicks are required.
    The current format is a downgrade on what was previously available in my view.

  39. Firstly, I want to thank the people that work in this web for the help that it affers for pathologist that are in formation and for pathologist in diary work.
    But the posibility of seeing the specific diagnostic in each case was really useful. I liked watching a list of specific diagnostic.

  40. Dear Johns Hopkins

    When I try to visit the website I find that I am directed to a different website:

    I’m finding that this new website is awkward to use.

    1. When I attempt to look at cases in the same way I would have done before, instead of the case coming straight up, I am directed to start a quiz, which means an extra click.

    2. When I want to get the answer for the case I have to go through the process of finishing the “quiz” and then having to click again on the view questions button. Again this is an extra click.

    3. The next post in the quiz does not always correspond to the next case as listed in the pages on categories. For example – If I want to look at some lung cases the first few on the list are; week 12 case 5, week 4 case 1 and week 4 case 6. If I were to go through the quiz though starting at week 12 case 5 I would next be directed to week 4 case 1 and then week 13 case 3, which is a skin case.

    4. If I do go back to the page with all the cases for a particular category I have found that the links to the cases I have already looked at are the same colour as the ones I haven’t yet seen. Previously once I had seen a case the link turned a different colour, which made navigation easier.

    I use the cases on this website to help me revise and study and I am grateful that someone has taken the time to present them and make them available to the public. I find these static images easier to use than virtual slides and a good substitute for glass slide collections. When I used the old website I had tended to work down the list of cases for a particular organ system making diagnoses and clicking to get feedback. The new website makes it more difficult to do that. I am not sure how other people are using your website but I personally find the quiz feature more of a hindrance than a benefit.

    Could you please consider returning to the old system where the cases were presented without the requirement to enter a quiz and so that the link to each case is marked a different colour once seen.

    1. Hi Stuart. Thanks very much for your input. We are looking at the functionality of this site and taking your comments and the comments of other users into consideration.
      Stay tuned!

      Johns Hopkins Pathology

  41. The search category allows to you search for a specific diagnosis, but the new website no longer allows you to look through a list of specific diagnoses within a category, which was a much used feature. A list of all the diagnoses in a category was useful to provide differential diagnoses that you might not have considered.

  42. can we please have the previous website back?

    new system
    1. does not provide discussion
    2. cannot see each system with different cases listed.

    I used the old system for my FRCpath examination and found it extremely helpful.
    I used to use this website for my routine reporting as I could see list of cases with diagnosis in each system.

    I don’t think I can use this new webpage any more .

    1. 1. Please explain what you mean when you say “does not provide discussion”.
      2. Are you looking for the different categories of cases? Choosing a category lists the cases for that category.

      Your input is much appreciated. We appreciate your patience as we work to approve the features on this website.
      Johns Hopkins Pathology

  43. Hi! May I ask can I claim CME/CPD points by finishing these online cases? If yes, how many points can I claim per case? Is there any certificate or proof of completion of cases.

    Thank you very much for your time and help.

    1. Pellow
      At the ancient system we can find the cases by diagnosis, but at new web you say at Categories Search , can be find the cases by diagnosis, but I can’t to find the site to make any search by diagnosis, only by categories
      Can you help me saying where are the diagnosis search site to find the cases ??

      Best wishes

      1. Like on the old site, you may search for cases by entering a diagnosis in the search bar and all cases whose diagnosis contain that term will be returned.
        For more details on advanced searches, see advanced searching.
        Thank you,
        Johns Hopkins Pathology

  44. Hi
    I loved your website and found it a very valuable exam resource. However I am very disappointed with the new changes. There are extra needless steps involved in getting to the case discussion at the end plus I cannot click the box to see a list of the diagnoses, therefore picking and choosing what I review. This has come at a very bad time during my exam prep. Any chance these issues will be resolved soon?

    1. Hi Claire.
      As mentioned in previous comments, we are in the process of bringing this website to its final state. We appreciate your input and comments and will think about integrating these features into the new website.
      As of now, those features will not be available for a few months.
      Thanks very much.
      Johns Hopkins Pathology

    1. Please explain- What exactly do you miss when you say you ‘miss cases discussion’?

      Thank you.

      1. After each case there was an explanatory notes, and it was very informative, sometime with PubMed link.

        1. The explanatory notes are still there. Once you answer the question and receive your score, you need to ‘View Questions’ to get that information. It should be all the same information that the old site had.
          This will be added to the list of features that we are looking to improve on this site, as we’d like to make it as easy as possible for you to view those explanations.

          Any other input is valuable and appreciated.
          Johns Hopkins Pathology

  45. How can i search the old cases from ur old websit?? Cant seem to access ur old website…
    Also in the categories, there is no option for Check or Uncheck to hide the diagnosis??? It was very helpful if one wanted to look up a specific entity

    1. The old SP Conference site will no longer be accessible on the web. This new SP Conference site is replacing the old one and has all the features that the old site had to offer. If you’d like to search by diagnosis, the search box now returns results based on both category and diagnosis. You can also search by category on the categories page. We will be improving these search result functions with time and appreciate your comments as to what could make them more useful to you.
      Thank you for your input.
      Johns Hopkins Pathology

    For me these new post is the first signal at the pathology world´s, we are “”off- crisis “”.
    A lot of time ago, there isn´t 6 cases at the same week
    Thank you very much for your work and support ot that web !!!
    Best and warm wishes

  47. I have enjoyed the weekly unkown conference nearly since its inception. I really appreciate that Johns Hopkins Pathology has continued to provide this service.

    Under the new format, the IHC slides are not labelled, which limits their usefulness, or perhaps I am missing something. Can this be fixed?

    Thank you!

    1. Brian, We are in the process of adding categories to the slides. They will soon be searchable by category. Thanks for your input!

  48. Thank yuo very much for ALL PATHOLOGICAL TEAM OF “”JHH””
    for that´s interesting cases, I think for best use or the cases, the IHQ images are subtitles or identifies !!
    Thank you very much for share your labor, work and experience with the World´s Pathologist Community !!

  49. Your team is a very very philantropic team, you shared your experience and knowledge with all us just at the sunday ! go up go !!

  50. i find the new website much better in terms of searching n proceeding with cases.please do put some cytology collection as well.

  51. Hi! Thank you for an excellent website. I am having some difficulty accessing the images from weeks 592 to 15 – please would it be possible to fix the links? Thanks!

    1. Adrina,
      Thank you for your input. This issue has been resolved.

    1. Josemari,
      We are still in the process of making the cases searchable by category. To search the old cases, you may visit the old site at
