Abstract

External influences, referred to as suprahistologic elements, may modulate pathologists' interpretation of morphologic findings. These elements can be divided into those that are loosely evidence based and exert a desirable influence on the diagnosis and those that arise from emotional, sometimes irrational perceptions not rooted in objective evidence. The latter, together with individual experience and competence, may lie at the core of the notorious interobserver and intraobserver variability.
