Immunohistochemical Analysis of Selected Head and Neck Neoplasms

Steve A. Kargas, MD, PhD, MBA, FACHE

The rapid expansion of the field of Head and Neck Pathology encompasses a wide variety of lesions, inflammatory conditions, neoplasms, and infections which requires a variety of tools for rapid and accurate diagnosis. Analysis using immunohistochemical and molecular tests will be discussed in selected neoplastic conditions. The presentation will focus primarily on the role and immunohistochemical reactivity patterns of numerous antibodies that aid in the diagnosis of Head and Neck tumors.
