Pathological anatomy

Pathological anatomy is in charge of macro and microscopic study of biopsies taking place in medical activities like in theater rooms and different existing specialized consultations in the clinic (skin biopsy, gynecological, maxillofacial, digestive, otolaryngologist…) Moreover added to these biopsies are the intraoperative ones which are studied during the surgical action, so the surgeon together with the pathological diagnosis and result can decide to proceed in one way or another (these are called intraoperative biopsies).

Moreover pathological anatomy is in charge of cytology spills or punctures. The main part of cytologies are Pap smears for cervix cancer screening.

Last, fetus necropsies (autopsies) are also carried out when they suffer malformations or other diseases and were born dead to find out about its cause.
