Histopathology is the microscopical examination of various forms of biological tissues to detect the appearance of diseased cells and tissues in very fine detail. The word "histopathology" is coined from a combination of three Greek words: histos meaning tissue, pathos meaning disease or suffering, and logos meaning study.A tissue diagnosis can be made on the basis of biopsy material taken from the patient on the ward or in the operating theatre, or from autopsy material.
Histopathology is the study of microscopic changes or abnormalities in tissues that are resultant of diseases. The main use of histopathology in clinical medicine is examination of a biopsy or surgical specimen by a pathologist, after the specimen has been processed and histological sections have been placed onto glass slides.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
