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
