Specimen information

Received two paraffin blocks and two stained slides labeled with B/509687/20 & B/509688/ 20 for review and immunohistochemistry. Test is performed on the block labeled with B/509688/20.

Clinical History

Features are suggestive of diffuse glioma - Low grade (WHO grade III).



Final Diagnosis

Thalamic tumor from 3rd lateral ventricle, paraffin block for review and immunohistochemistry:

  • Integrated diagnosis: Diffuse glioma,H3K27 mutant , WHO grade IV
  • Histologic diagnosis : Diffuse astrocytoma , WHO grade II of IV , IDH-1 negative by IHC

commentComments from the pathologists on their approach to the rendered diagnosis with further recommendations for molecular/ cytogenetic studies

Specimen consists of biopsy fragments of while matter with a moderately atypical infiltrate of astrocytic cells. there is no evidence of vascular proliferation or necrosis. Scattered mitosis is seen.

Although histologic grade is that of a grade II astrocytoma the positivity for H3K27 M is consistent with a diagnosis of a diffuse midline glioma, H3K27 M mutant which are considered as grade IV lesions due to their historically aggressive clinical behaviour.

  • Microscopic and immunohistochemically assessments
  • Detailed clinico-pathologic correlation predicting the response and guiding the treatment.
  • In specialized branches, like neuropathology, giving an integrated report

Correlation with radiology findings is recommended to confirm midline location of the tumor

All immunohistochemistry markers have been evaluated in the context of appropriate positive and negative controls. A result is considered uninterpretable as a result of the type of fixative used (non 10% neutral buffered formalin), time to fixation (> 1 hour), duration of fixation (> 6 hr or <72 hour), strong decalcification, or inappropriate staining of normal internal or external assay controls. An alternative sample for retesting is then usually recommended.

These assays have not been validated on decalcified specimens.
