Abstract

While describing a surgical specimen, examine the external surface of the specimen to see any abnormality followed by examination of cut surface, then try to identify the parent organ if included in the specimen, e.g. presence of teeth indicates jaw specimen, and later examine the pathological area of the specimen and try to identity the disease by various gross morphological features of the lesion. Pathological specimens of head and neck include tuberculous lymphadenitis, lymphoma, multinodular goiter, squamous cell carcinoma of mandible, osteosarcoma of mandible, pleomorphic adenoma, lipoma, cystic hygroma, and malignant melanoma of mandible. The specimens are studied for their gross and microscopical features to come out with a diagnosis.
