Histopathology is a branch of pathology which deals with the study of disease in a tissue section.The four fundamental tissues that is recognized are epithelial, connective, muscular and nervous tissue. The arrangement of tissues constitute a major organ systems, including the circulatory, lymphatic, integumentary, skeletal, nervous, respiratory,digestive, urinary, endocrine, exocrine and reproductive systems. For the diagnosis of pathological conditions, the tissue undergoes a series of histological processes before it reaches the examiners desk to be thoroughly examined microscopically. Histological processes includes tissue fixation, staining, embedding, sectioning and immunohistochemistry. This course will focus in depth the practical aspects of tissue preparation to study the manifestations of disease.
