So Called Junk Materials & Pitfalls

So Called Junk Materials & Pitfalls

The so-called junk materials are important
  • major workload of a private practice
  • problematic if normal histology and embryology is not well known (normal structures may be mistaken as neoplasm)
  • important resource for immunohistochemistry controls
  • incidental neoplasms are not uncommon
  • systemic diseases like amyloidosis or vascultis may have features in these specimens
  • proof of surgery in medico-legal cases and for billing purposes
  • Normal histologic features are used to name or describe neoplasms
  • Autopsy practice is in decline, these specimens are good to learn autopsy pathology
