Ten problematical issues identified by pathology review for multidisciplinary gynaecological oncology meetings.


:Pathology review of gynaecological cancer specimens is often carried out as part of the working of gynaecological oncology multidisciplinary team meetings. This review describes the author's experience regarding the most common issues identified during this process. Ten subjects are covered; these range from histopathological interpretational errors to non-interpretational areas, for example, inappropriate use of the term 'microinvasive cervical carcinoma' and the use of inappropriate staging systems. This review is intended to be of practical use to the surgical pathologist reporting gynaecological cancer specimens.
