The diagnosis and management of gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GISTs) is best accomplished within the multidisciplinary team environment. The pathologist has a key role within this framework to provide accurate and comprehensive diagnostic and prognostic information. These guidelines describe the core and non-core data that should be recorded in histopathological reports from GIST resection specimens to facilitate this process.
