Routine HistopathologyRoutine Histopathology

“Routine technique” means fixation in aqueous formaldehyde, embedding in paraffin, and staining with hematoxylin and eosin. A wide variety of procedures are included within this frame, some resulting in excellent preparations, others, although sometimes presented in scientific publications, giving slides which are virtually useless for the purpose of differential diagnostic evaluation. All patients, whether suffering from as yet unclassified but surely most interesting conditions or merely presenting with lesions of ordinary lethal disease, should benefit from investigations conducted at the highest technical level at disposal.
