Cytological specimens play a pivotal role in head and neck nodule/mass work up and diagnoses. The specimens´ importance has grown with the onset of personalized medicine and the routine use of molecular markers in the diagnostic work up. The Updates in Head and Neck Cytopathology Short Course ran during the 35th European Congress of Pathology held in Dublin, Ireland, in 2023 and brought together experts in cytopathology, pathology, and related fields to share their expertise and experience in the field of head and neck cytopathology and its future directions. Topics such as a one-stop clinic, the Milan System for Reporting Salivary Gland Cytopathology, next generation sequencing, and human papilloma virus detection in the head and neck area were covered during the short course. These topics are briefly summarized in the present review.
