Anatomical pathology

Anatomical pathology is the medical specialism which combines the study of macroscopic (visible to the naked eye) and microscopic (optic microscope, electron microscope) morphological changes in the structure of organs or tissues and/or cells in the body.

Identifying changes or lesions allows to diagnose various diseases.

The doctor specialising in this discipline is called an anatomical pathologist or an anatomopathologist.

The first treatise of anatomical pathology was written in 1679 by a doctor from Geneva named Théophile Bonet.

Modern anatomical pathology began in the 18th century with the Italian doctor Jean-Baptiste Morgagni. In the 19th century, the German doctor Rudolf Virchow provided a fundamental contribution to the discipline as we known it. The first independent university professorship in this discipline was created at the University of Strasbourg in 1819 by the French doctor Jean Lobstein All of the activities of the Centre of Anatomical Pathology of SYNLAB Belgium are subject to a quality system established from standard ISO 15189.
