As having announced in the previous issue, Turkish Journal of Pathology is now being delivered by mail only
to those who are holding the memberships of any regional Pathology Societies and have updated their personal
information in Federation of Turkish Pathology Societies official website. Meanwhile we have to mention that
our foreign colleagues whose mail addresses are available still have the oppurtunity to receive Turkish Journal
of Pathology as before.
Let us share the news with you regarding the forthcoming National Congress. As it is announced, the 21st
National Pathology Congress will be held in Izmir on 16-20 November, 2011.
It will be great moments that we meet many well-known international guests such as Hiroyuki Shimada,

Massi in our country this year.
There are five courses in the scientific program including prostate pathology, soft tissue tumors, gastrointestinal

Please let us remind you the importance of your participitation to free sessions in which we will discuss general
issues in Pathology such as financial status of pathological service and the current activities of Federation of
