This educational module focusses on primary and metastatic mucinous tumours and new approaches in the clinical management. In the first part the pathologist’s view will be discussed, focussing on the two distinct patterns of growth, the expansile and infiltrating types. Moreover, the gross and pathologic criteria for distinguishing between a primary ovarian mucinous carcinoma and a mucinous carcinoma metastatic to the ovary will be evaluated.

The impact of the 2014 WHO classification on surgical approach to manage mucinous ovarian cancer and the place of fertility-sparing surgery as well as peritoneal and lymph node staging according to the expansile and infiltrating types will be considered.

Finally, there will be an update on medical management and controversies surrounding the molecular landscape.

The learning objectives are as follows:

1. To master the knowledge about the particularities of pathology in mucinous tumors

2. To learn about the surgical approach in mucinous tumors

3. To acquire information about medical treatment and update on recent molecular studies. 

The ideal profile of the course candidate is gynaecological oncologists with special interest in the mucinous tumours treatment, aiming to refine their skills, candidates should be fluent in the English language.

All speakers have reported no potential conflict of interests.
