Five years after the last prostatic carcinoma grading consensus conference of the International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP), accrual of new data and modification of clinical practice require an update of current pathologic grading guidelines. This manuscript summarizes the proceedings of the ISUP consensus meeting for grading of prostatic carcinoma held in September 2019, in Nice, France.

The 2019 International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) Consensus Conference on Grading of Prostatic Carcinoma

This manuscript summarizes the proceedings of the ISUP consensus meeting for grading of prostatic carcinoma held in September 2019, in Nice, France, where topics brought to consensus included approaches to reporting of Gleason patterns 4 and 5 quantities, and minor/tertiary patterns.

Contemporary Gleason Grading of Prostatic Carcinoma: An Update With Discussion on Practical Issues to Implement the 2014 International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) Consensus Conference on Gleason Grading of Prostatic Carcinoma

This manuscript gives the options how to record percentage pattern 4 and under which situations recording this information may not be necessary, and replaces the term tertiary-grade pattern with minor high- grade pattern.

International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) Consensus Conference on Handling and Staging of Radical Prostatectomy Specimens: rationale and organization

The 2009 International Society of Urological Pathology consensus conference in Boston, made recommendations regarding the standardization of pathology reporting of radical prostatectomy specimens by describing some novel features of the organization of the consensus process.

The 2014 International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) Consensus Conference on Gleason Grading of Prostatic Carcinoma: Definition of Grading Patterns and Proposal for a New Grading System

The basis for a new grading system was proposed in 2013 by one of the authors and accepted by the World Health Organization for the 2016 edition of Pathology and Genetics: Tumours of the Urinary System and Male Genital Organs.

International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) grading of prostate cancer – An ISUP consensus on contemporary grading

The International Society of Urological Pathology has issued guidelines for the grading of prostate cancer based on a consensus conference held in 2014, and it is recommended that Gleason scores ≤6, 3 + 4 = 7, 4 + 3 = 6, 8 and 9–10 be reported as five groups, i.e. ISUP grades 1–5.

Controversial issues in Gleason and International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) prostate cancer grading: proposed recommendations for international implementation

A detailed review looks at the 2014 ISUP conference results and subsequent literature from an international perspective and proposes several recommendations that provide a framework for discussion at future consensus meetings.

Implications of the International Society of Urological Pathology modified Gleason grading system.

The implications of the ISUP modified Gleason grading system are reviewed for standardizing both the perception of histologic patterns and how the grade information is compiled and reported.

Evolution, controversies and the future of prostate cancer grading

This review summarizes the most important modifications that were introduced by the 2005 and 2014 International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) revisions of Gleason grading and discusses the impact that these have had on current grading practices.

Prostate Needle Biopsy Reporting: How Are the Surgical Members of the Society of Urologic Oncology Using Pathology Reports to Guide Treatment of Prostate Cancer Patients?

The more radical prostatectomies performed by a surgeon, the greater the likelihood that they considered perineural invasion clinically important, and atypical small acinar proliferation was uniformly considered sufficient to re-biopsy by 98% (41 of 42) of the urologists.

The prognostic significance of tertiary Gleason patterns of higher grade in radical prostatectomy specimens: a proposal to modify the Gleason grading system.

The authors propose that the Gleason system for radical prostatectomy specimens be modified to take into account small volumes of patterns 4 and 5, which are important prognostically.

Correlation of prostate needle biopsy and radical prostatectomy Gleason grade in academic and community settings.

Sampling was the major source of discrepancy and was often due to the high-grade component in the RP not being present in the biopsy results or due to a component of cancer on the needle reflecting such a small percentage of the pattern seen on RP that this pattern was not included in the final RP Gleason score.

Biological determinants of cancer progression in men with prostate cancer.

The % Gleason grade 4/5, cancer volume, positive lymph node findings, and intraprostatic vascular invasion were independently associated with prostate cancer progression, defined by an increasing PSA level.

It is concluded that prostatic ductal adenocarcinoma seen on needle biopsy implies more advanced cancer with a shortened time to progression, compared to a previous study group of men with acinar carcinoma.
