The role of immunohistochemical markers in distinguishing peritoneal mesothelioma from primary or metastatic serous papillary carcinoma of the peritoneum was evaluated. We immunostained 20 peritoneal mesotheliomas (from 14 men and 6 women), 14 primary peritoneal carcinomas, and 14 metastatic serous ovarian carcinomas with a panel of 16 antibodies. Positive staining for calretinin was identified in 17 (85%) of 20 mesotheliomas, but all carcinomas were negative. Positive staining for Ber-EP4 was… CONTINUE READING
