Aims and scope

Diagnostic Pathology is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal that considers research in surgical and clinical pathology, immunology, and biology, with a special focus on cutting-edge approaches in diagnostic pathology and tissue-based therapy.

The journal covers all aspects of surgical pathology, including classic diagnostic pathology, prognosis-related diagnosis (tumor stages, prognosis markers, such as MIB-percentage, hormone receptors, etc.), and therapy-related findings. The journal also focuses on the technological aspects of pathology, including molecular biology techniques, morphometry aspects (stereology, DNA analysis, syntactic structure analysis), communication aspects (telecommunication, virtual microscopy, virtual pathology institutions, etc.), and electronic education and quality assurance (for example interactive publication, on-line references with automated updating, etc.).

Featured article: HNF4A expression as a potential diagnostic tool to discriminate primary gastric cancer from breast cancer metastasis in a Brazilian cohort

Metastasis from ILC to gastric mucosa

In this article, Matos et al. explore the idea that HNF4A alone could be a gold standard marker for distinguishing primary gastric cancer from breast metastasis. They performed immunohistochemistry analysis of HNF4A, ER, PR and GCDFP-15 in 126 patients, and confirmed the sensitivity and specificity of the HNF4A marker compared to other currently used clinical markers.

Editor's quote

"Diagnostic Pathology has emerged as a premier journal that aims to publish cutting edge articles focused on diagnostic pathology with an emphasis on novel morphological and molecular findings that make an impact on diagnosis of neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases. The goal of the editorial board and our team is to highlight the cross-roads of diagnostic pathology and new tools and technologies that are exciting, challenging and making an impact on the practice of pathology. We will continue to bring updates in the field of diagnostic pathology by way of novel and interesting case reports, research and original articles and a series of key review articles by experts in the field that will emphasize the new developments which are disease-specific and highlight contemporary and novel technologies that are changing the practice of diagnostic pathology. This is an exciting time in pathology as we are confronted with a new frontier of science and technology which continues to evolve and accelerate the discipline of diagnostic pathology and we wish to take our readers with us on this exciting journey. We want to collaborate with our reviewers and our readers to make Diagnostic Pathology a premier and trusted source of new and exciting developments in the field of diagnostic pathology."
