ABSTRACT: This study aimed to ascertain views, incidence of reporting and diagnostic criteria for gastric foveolar dysplasia. A questionnaire, a post-questionnaire discussion and microscopic assessment of selected cases was conducted by gastrointestinal pathologists to explore the above-stated aims. Fifty-four percent of respondents never or rarely diagnosed gastric foveolar-type dysplasia. The general consensus was that round nuclei, lack of nuclear stratification, presence of inflammation/damage and surface maturation favoured reactive change; while architectural abnormalities/complexity and nuclear enlargement mainly were used to separate low-grade from high-grade foveolar dysplasia. Immunohistochemistry was rarely used to make the diagnosis of dysplasia and was thought not to be of help in routine practice. Inter-observer agreement in grading of dysplasia versus reactive, and the type of dysplasia (foveolar versus adenomatous), was substantial/almost perfect amongst 35.7% and 21.4% of participants, respectively. This reflects low reproducibility in making these diagnoses. In conclusion, foveolar dysplasia was a rarely made diagnosis among 14 gastrointestinal pathologists, there are no uniform criteria for diagnosis and there is poor inter-observer agreement in separating low-grade foveolar dysplasia from reactive gastric mucosa and low-grade adenomatous dysplasia. Greater awareness and agreed criteria will prevent misdiagnosis of low-grade foveolar dysplasia as reactive, and vice versa.
