This information may be Session E01: Mesothelioma obtained from imaging studies or from observations of the surgeon at time of biopsy. The most common differential is between mesothelioma and adenocarcinoma, with pulmonary adenocarcinoma high on the list for pleural lesions. For this purpose, the author uses four positive mesothelial markers: calretinin (nuclear and cytoplasmic staining), E01-02 Mesothelioma, Mon, Sept 3, 16:00 – 17:30 cytokeratins 5/6 (cytoplasmic staining), WT-1 (nuclear staining), and State of the art mesothelioma diagnosis: a moving target D2-40 (membrane staining).
