The word pathology derives from the ancient Greek word "pathos" (disease) and is a branch of science that reveals the causes of diseases by examining the diseased tissues and organs.
The first step in treating diseases is accurate and fast diagnosis. Therefore, pathology is in close contact with many other branches of medicine.
