Özet

OBJECTIVE: During the microscopic examination of the specimens after appendectomy operations performed due to acute appendicitis, pathologists may encounter some incidental and unusual lesions. Appendectomy specimens are sampled as 3 sections/1 paraffin block in many centers. In this study, we aimed to evaluate whether multiple and dense sampling of appendix specimens has an impact on the incidence of incidental lesions of the appendix.
