Abstract

The frozen section (FS) examination is made while the patient is under anaesthesia on the operating table. The FS may be one of the most important procedures performed by the pathologist during his disgonstic practice. It is a difficult procedure. The pathologist has to arrive at a correct decision in a short time under pressure based on his experience, judgement and the knowledge of his specialty and allied disciplines. The operating surgeon should also realize the limitations of FS and it is imperative
for him to make a prior appointment for FS and should always ask himself whether the results of the FS examination will in any way influence the surgical procedure. If the answer is no, then FS examination is not indicated.
