Abstract

The diagnosis of neoplasia continues to rest upon the judicious application of morphologic criteria for the identification of tumor cells. Immunohistologic techniques offer the pathologist an alternative means of cell identification according to the antigenic constitution of the cell or its products. The potential effect of these techniques upon the diagnosis and classification of neoplasia is illustrated by the application of immunoperoxidase methods to the study of α-fetoprotein, human chorionic gonadotrophin, and steroid hormone localization in tumors of the ovary and testis.
