Spleen Careful gross examination of the spleen is as important as the microscopic evaluation. The entire spleen should be sliced fresh at 2-3 mm intervals and all cut surfaces examined. The gross findings in the spleen are prognostically important: the presence of five or more grossly identified nodules, regardless of size, conveys a worse prognosis [12]. Suspicious foci and any obvious tumor nodules should be taken for microscopic evaluation. Four blocks are usually adequate, and overnight fixation gives best results.

Although by combining the architectural features seen in the frozen section with cytologic features assessed in a good touch preparation from the freshly cut node surface, one can often make a definitive diagnosis. Relatively few individuals attain enough experience with touch preparations of HD to be proficient. If touch preparations are fixed immediately in alcohol and stained with hematoxylin and eosin the cytologic features closely approximate those seen in paraffin sections. From a practical point of view frozen sections should be used to assure that adequate tissue is present for the diagnosis on permanent section.
