Re: [Histonet] tonsils

From:Rene J Buesa

We used to gross them only but the PA (usually at requests from the surgeon or the 
medical practitioner) could ask for a microscopic evaluation sometimes as results 
of a request by the insurance company!. In that case we used to process them and do 
just H&E.
Essentially you will have to ask your pathologist what to do about them.

I need some information on how other facilities are handling tonsils. Are they gross only and what criteria is used to have microscopic performed on them? Thanks for any info. - Linda
