IJSP also features diagnostic pearls, ground-breaking investigations from the forefront of molecular surgical pathology as it applies to surgical pathology, highlights pitfalls and possible mistakes, and profiles of tumors and immunomarkers.

Among the important topics covered in recent issues are:

  • Correlations between morphology and molecular biology in tumors
  • Thyroid tumor pathology
  • Diagnostic clues in tumors
  • Controversial aspects of tumor pathology
  • Thyroid tumors
  • Soft tissue tumors
  • Breast tumors and tumor-like conditions
  • Immunohistochemical profiles of tumors
  • Genetics and pathology of familial gastric cancer
  • Sentinel lymph node examination
  • Critical analysis of Image Analysis Systems in Pathology

IJSP includes the following sections in every issue: Guest Editorials; News; Essays; Consensus Conferences; Controversies in Surgical Pathology; Molecular Surgical Pathology; Review Articles; Techniques in Pathology; Original Articles; Diagnostic Clues; Pitfalls in Pathology; Legal Aspects of Pathology; History of Surgical Pathology; Images in Pathology; Case Reports, and Letters to the Editor.
