Review Articles

A relatively large number of new endothelial markers that can assist in the diagnosis and classification of endothelial and vascular neoplasms have become available over the past few years. The expression of these markers, however, differs considerably among the various tumors. A selection of markers that have potential diagnostic utility or are of current interest among pathologists are reviewed and compared with some of the more traditional markers that have been employed in diagnostic pathology.
