A histopathologic scoring system as a tool for standardized reporting of chronic (ileo)colitis and independent risk assessment for inflammatory bowel disease
Human Pathology, 06/21/2012
Naini BV et al. – This histopathologic scoring system might be a useful approach to report the findings of lower gastrointestinal mucosal biopsies and to provide measured opinion regarding chronic (ileo)colitis independent of available clinical information. In addition, a defined set of diagnostic statements with regard to likelihood of inflammatory bowel disease would reduce interpretive variability.
