Prior meetings of the International Conference on Neoadjuvant Hormonal Therapy in Prostate Cancer identified areas of concern in the pathologic analysis of post-treatment specimens. In response, a pathology subcommittee was formed to address the questions that had been raised. Recommendations are made here concerning pretreatment biopsy review and reporting, handling and reporting of radical prostatectomy specimens, Gleason scoring of treated cancer, grading of therapy effect, role of immunohistochemistry procedures, and the significance of high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia. Neoadjuvant trials with both surgery and radiation therapy were considered in drawing up these recommendations.
