Abstract

Gallbladder is a common surgical pathology specimen. However, carcinomas of the gallbladder are relatively rare in most western countries. Hence, general surgical pathologists may not be that familiar and comfortable diagnosing these tumors. In this review, we discuss the morphological and immunohistochemical characteristics of gallbladder carcinomas, provide updates on tumor classification and staging of these tumors as per the most recent WHO classification, and focus on practical considerations that would be most relevant to diagnosis and clinical management of these tumors.
