Résumé
This short review addresses the question whether pathologists will continue to play a central role in the diagnosis of mucosal lesions of the gastrointestinal tract or whether their role will soon be assumed by clinical colleagues equipped with modern high-resolution endoscopes. In order to support the raison d'etre of the pathologist - at least for the time being and the near future - the author lists three arguments, related to (i) the differences in the orientation of the plane of view (histology: perpendicular to the mucosal surface vs. endoscopy: parallel to the mucosal surface), (ii) the advantages of staining and immunostaining tissue sections, and (iii) the possibility to perform deeper sections and to consul with colleagues in the case of difficult diagnoses.
