Histopathology report

Final reports of parathyroid specimens should include details on:

• the specimen location (right/left, superior/inferior), size and weight.

• the macroscopic size of tumour and degree of encapsulation.

• the presence or absence of invasion of capsule and surrounding tissues.

• the distance of tumour from the nearest margin.

• the presence or absence of vascular invasion.

If other specimens are attached as an in-continuity dissection (e.g., neck dissection), these can be handled separately in the usual fashion.
