Gallbladder focal epithelial atypia; FEA

Differential diagnosis

- Take 4 more blocks (with multiple fragments)
- Regenerative epithelial changes

- Be especially alerted if presence of goblet cells.

- low-grade dysplasia

  • If no convincing HGD, then it does not matter:
  • Low grade dysplasia is of no known chnical signdicance in gallbladder.
  • HGID/invasion must have been ruled out.

- However: 2/3 of GBC is clinically/grossly inapparent.
