Gastric (gastrointestinal)-type endometrial adenocarcinoma presenting as a solitary endometrial polyp: a case report and literature review on a novel and potentially aggressive endometrial cancer histotype
Pathologica. 2023 Aug;115(4):227-231. doi: 10.32074/1591-951X-870.ABSTRACTGastric-type carcinoma of the endometrium is a rare endometrial cancer histotype, recently introduced in the 2020 WHO classification of the female genital tract tumors. Clinico-pathological features, as well as treatment strategies for this rare histotype, are not fully defined. We herein present an unusual case of endometrial carcinoma with mucinous features arising in a 58-year-old menopausal woman. Morphological features of the present case as well as immunohistochemical profile were consistent with gastrointestinal differentiation. Therefore, aft...

Molecular testing in indeterminate thyroid nodules: an additional tool for clinical decision-making
Pathologica. 2023 Aug;115(4):205-216. doi: 10.32074/1591-951X-887.ABSTRACTThyroid nodules are commonly encountered in clinical practice, affecting up to 50% of the population. The large majority of thyroid lumps are benign incidental findings detected by imaging, while approximately 5-15% harbor malignancy. For a target patient's care, it is of paramount importance to identify and treat thyroid malignancy, while preventing unnecessary invasive surgery in patients with benign lesions. Although fine needle aspiration (FNA) associated with cytological examination provides malignant risk information, 20-30% of diagnoses fall i...

Professional liability subsequent to the Cartabia Reform: implications for pathologists
Pathologica. 2023 Aug;115(4):217-220. doi: 10.32074/1591-951X-878.ABSTRACTThe Cartabia Reform modifies the standard used by the Public Prosecutor for the submission of requests for filing or referral for trial. The standard has shifted to the "reasonable prediction of conviction" by moving the principle of in dubio pro reo to the investigation phase. The scope of the legislative amendment is focused on protecting the rights of investigated individuals, who are too often brought to trial without adequate supporting evidence. The implications that this reform has on legal proceedings concerning the criminal liability of heal...
