The dataset has been developed for the pathology reporting of resection specimens of the oesophagus. Carcinomas involving the oesophagogastric junction (OGJ) with tumour epicentre ≤20 mm into the proximal stomach are included. A separate dataset is available for endoscopic resections of the oesophagus.

Neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs) and mixed neuroendocrine-non-neuroendocrine neoplasms (MiNENs) of the oesophagus are included. 

Well differentiated neuroendocrine tumours (NETs), non-epithelial malignancies such as melanoma, and secondary tumours are excluded from this dataset.
