病理学会雑誌にエディトリアルというタイプの論文を書きました。雑誌社から添付の表彰状をいただきました。日本の病理学会英文誌Pathology Internationalはインパクトファクターがまだ2点以下と注目度の低い雑誌です。病理学会会員としては、世界の病理学会雑誌に肩を並べる雑誌に成長してほしいと思っています。その一つの方策は、注目され、引用される論文を多数掲載することです。この一助になれば幸いです。

Thyroid FNA Cytology, Differential Diagnoses and Pitfalls

Thyroid FNA Cytology, Differential Diagnoses and Pitfalls

シュプリンガ-から甲状腺細胞診の教科書『Thyroid FNA Cytology, Differential Diagnoses and Pitfalls』第2版20195月出版しました興味のある方は、以下のリンクをぜひご覧ください。 https://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-981-13-1897-9 今まで日本語、英語の教科書は多数ありますが、欧米のガイドラインや、教科書を読み、我々の診療の場で、これを実践しても、欧米の治療成績とはならないことに気付かれていると思います。本教科書では、これを解消するために、それぞれの立場を、両論併記したことです。本書の特色は、欧米とアジアの著者が、欧米とアジアの診療の違いに焦点を当て、これらを対比しながら、それぞれの立場から解説しています。 英語で以下のように本書の特色を解説しています。 This book offers a comprehensive guide to thyroid fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology. Borderline/precursor tumors, which were introduced in the 4th edition of the WHO classification of thyroid tumors, are also incorporated. In this second edition, prominent international experts discuss the different approaches to thyroid FNA cytology employed in various countries such as Australia, Canada, China, Korea, Portugal, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, the USA, UK, Italy and Japan. The book not only covers key principles of thyroid cytopathology but also addresses technical aspects such as procedural complications, liquid-based cytology, immunocytochemistry, staining procedures, and potential pitfalls. Case-based descriptions and clinical findings, radiologic imaging, cytology, and histopathologic diagnosis – all complemented by a wealth of detailed photographs – will help reader understand and overcome many common dilemmas in daily practice. As such, the book represents an indispensable reference work for all cytopathologists, especially those practicing thyroid cytopathology.

Asian Working Group in The 20th ICC Sydney

Asian WG Companion Meeting

Asian WG Companion Meeting

The Asian Working Group Companion Meeting

アジア甲状腺病理/細胞診ワーキンググループは13カ国40名以上のメンバーが参加する活動です。2017年より活動を開始しました。多くの論文発表と、学術発表を重ね、アジアの甲状腺診療の特色を明らかとしてきました。信じられないことかもしれませんが、アジアでは良性と診断し治療されている甲状腺結節の相当数が、米国では癌と診断され癌として治療されているようです。これを解決するため、境界腫瘍の提唱を私覚道は2009年より始めました。これは一部がNIFTPとUMPとして、2017年WHO分類に取り入れられました。しかし、現場での診療には、この境界病変の概念の普及は遅々として進まず。欧米ではまだ相当数の患者が癌として治療されているようです。アジアにこの診療ガイドラインが侵入してこないように警鐘を鳴らしています。日本の病理医、甲状腺診療にかかわる内科医、外科医の参加を募ります。

The 20th ICC Sydney was over with great success. Asian Working Group companion meeting was held on the 8th of May (Figure 1), and we had the third face to face meeting. Gradually we found significant differences in thyroid practice among Asian WG members as well as between Asian and Western thyroid practice more and more. We are proudly showed our recent activities.
