Discordant Pathological and Endoscopic Diagnosis: Consider Floaters
ACG Case Rep J. 2021 May;8(5) :e00583
PMID: 34007858 PMCID: PMC8126555
AbstractA tissue floater or extraneous cross-contamination tissue on a microscopic slide is rare; however, it is a potential cause of diagnostic error. Occasionally, on collecting and processing of specimens, cross-contamination of tissue occurs leading to pathologic findings that are inconsistent with endoscopic findings. If the extraneous tissue is neoplastic, it can lead to a false-positive diagnosis. We present a case of discordant pathological and endoscopic diagnosis of invasive squamous carcinoma of the esophagus.
