In the 1990s, a movement toward standardized reporting in pathology grew along with a body of literature demonstrating a lack of consistency in traditional pathology reports, including omission of key findings. In the past decade, standardized synoptic reporting in pathology has become more widely utilized, particularly based on a major effort by the CAP Cancer Committee to develop tumor site-specific checklists for pathologists. This chapter summarizes options and recommendations for reporting plasma cell neoplasms in final pathology diagnostic reports.
