Revision of Standardized Nomenclature
goRENI - the global open RENI system - is the standard reference for nomenclature and diagnostic criteria in toxicologic pathology and at the same time the Internet discussion platform for the global initiative "INHAND" - the International Harmonization of Nomenclature and Diagnostic criteria. Visit for more details. ESTP members have free access to the nomenclature, diagnostic criteria, images, and much more!
Ovary sex cord stromal lesions have been renamed and updated, and General pathology terms split into non-proliferative and proliferative lists. Templates for change control are available on goRENI and here.
