“…The original histologic criteria, although quite detailed, 50,59,60 were nonetheless too ambiguous to permit reproducible application, so the entity became controversial. Although dysplastic nevus was banished from the NIH-approved lexicon over 25 years ago, 61 it was nonetheless incorporated into the recent WHO lexicon. 62 Despite Clark's posthumously published attempt at clarification, 54 and the important observation that dysplastic features may be seen in the growing stages of ordinary nevi, 63 different pathologists in the same department may still vary greatly in their thresholds for labelling a nevus as dysplastic.…”

“…Plato’s observation transcends to our present day histopathology practice. Variability in diagnostic interpretation is common even among ‘experts’ 2 . An improvement in inter‐observer agreement has been shown in panels of pathologists when diagnostic criteria and educational material were provided 3 .…”

“…No standard treatment modality has been proposed, and therapy relies on a combination of multiple factors, such as VIN grade, age of the woman, site and size of the lesions, symptomatology. In this context histopathological diagnosis is one of the keystones for decisions affecting clinical management of the patients and a clear and reliable pathology report is needed 18,19 .…”
