The following is the response I recived from a coding specialist at the American Academy of Dermatology. I am trying not to be concerned that the reference is 6 years old but I think it clears up what we thought to be true.
88342 for IHC
88314 other “special stains”
Here is the description for 88314 according to November 2006 cpt Assistant article, the companion piece to the AMA CPT Code Book.
AMA CPT definition of a Block: Tissue flattened by cutting into pieces, embedded, and frozen in mounting medium used by histotechnologists to embed tissue for frozen sections.
