From routine H and E sections, surgical pathology has progressed to special stains, enzyme histochemistry, tissue culture, electron microscopy, immunohistochemistry and molecular biology. As with all new developments in medicine, these methodologies have gone through a life cycle of unrestrained enthusiasm, disappointment followed by a more sober and realistic approach. The most profound impact on the way we practice histopathology today has been of Immunohistochemistry (IHC) - a powerful and cost effective tool applicable in light microscopy. It is ‘an aesthetic component to practice histology’, which validates the morphologic judgment pathologists make.
