Frozen sections of pancreatic tissue for congenital hyperinsulunism (CHI) should be discussed in advance by the Clinicians, Surgeons and Pathologists. Where consent for enrolment in the CHIPS study is taken, discussions should also include Professor Mark Dunne from Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Manchester.
The specimen for frozen section should be transported immediately to the laboratory in an appropriately labelled dry specimen container. Formalin must not be added. Specimens should be handed directly to the technical staff at Paediatric Histopathology as a matter of urgency.
