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.
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.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
