WP

Definition : The study of abnormal tissue is known as histopathology.

Histopathology refers to the microscopic examination of tissue in order to study the manifestations of disease.

Specifically, in clinical medicine, histopathology refers to the 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.

In contrast, cytopathology examines free cells or tissue fragments.
