Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The fifth edition of the World Health Organization (WHO) Classification of Female Genital Tumors was published in 2020. Clinically significant changes have been made in the pathologic classification of vulvar, cervical and uterine neoplasms, including etiology-based classification of vulvar squamous intraepithelial lesions and squamous cell carcinomas, cervical squamous and glandular lesions, novel histologic subtypes and molecular classification of endometrial carcinoma, novel subtypes of uterine sarcomas and the addition of a fumarate-hydratase-deficient leiomyoma. Although the classification of ovarian and fallopian tube neoplasms has not been significantly changed from the prior edition, important refinements have been achieved, including serous and non-serous epithelial tumors, and sex cord–stromal tumors.

In this Special Issue, we welcome original research articles and reviews that provide critical assessment or further insight into any of the aforementioned gynecologic cancer subtypes and implications for clinical management. Research areas may include, but are not limited to, histologic features and issues in the diagnosis and/or differential diagnosis of challenging entities, ancillary studies, prognostic/predictive biomarkers and the current role of pathologic assessment in precision medicine.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Dr. Gulisa Turashvili
