Anatomic Pathology Abstracts, 3/17

March 2017—An immunohistochemical algorithm for ovarian carcinoma typing: Five major histotypes of ovarian carcinoma exist. Diagnostic typing criteria have evolved over time, and past cohorts may be misclassified by current standards. The authors undertook an endeavor to reclassify the recently assembled Canadian Ovarian Experimental Unified Resource and Alberta Ovarian Tumor Type cohorts using immunohistochemical (IHC) biomarkers and to develop an IHC algorithm for ovarian carcinoma histotyping.
