Pediatric Pathology


Pediatric pathology is a unique subspecialty focusing on the study and diagnosis of human disease manifested in the embryo, fetus, infant, children and adolescents.  Pediatric pathologists are experts in this field with a strong foundation in general pathology and substantial understanding of normal growht and development, along with extensive knowledge of pediatric medicine and genetics.  Complications of pregnancy and prematurity, congenital malformations and inherited disorders, immunodeficiencies and infections, pediatric blood diseases and tumors are but a few examples of the areas that our pediatric pathologists help to diagnose and manage.
