‘Are we Men or Corporals?’ is a 1955 movie in which the Neapolitan actor Totò (Antonio De Curtis; 1898–1967) set Men (those who work very hard and are basically good and simple individuals) against Corporals (those who use their authority and power to make Men’s life difficult). Medicolegal concerns are nowadays the Corporals of routine histopathology and dermatopathology. It is well known that the false-negative misdiagnosis of melanoma is the most common reason for claims filed against pathologists .
