Abstract: Endometrial carcinoma is the commonest gynecological malignancy in developed countries, and the various aspects of the pathology report are critical for patient management. There are many areas of controversy with regard to the handling of resection specimens and the pathologic reporting of endometrial carcinomas. These controversies include those related to sampling, diagnosis, reporting of parameters important for staging, and the undertaking of ancillary studies. These controversies stimulated the International Society of Gynecological Pathologists (ISGyP) endometrial carcinoma project. The project was devised at the ISGyP Board of Directors meeting in March 2015 under the Presidency of Richard Zaino. An organizing committee was selected from the members of the Board of Directors and the education committee of the ISGyP. The organizing committee (comprising the 5 authors of this editorial), as a first step, devised a comprehensive survey, which was emailed to all members of the ISGyP; the survey covered all aspects of endometrial cancer reporting, including specimen dissection and sampling, diagnosis, staging, prognostic factors, and ancillary studies.
