Course Content
The study of Pathologic Anatomy includes all aspects of Pathology as encompassed in the branches of
General and Systemic Pathology. Only the board outlines ate provided.
A) General Pathology
Normal cell and tissue structure and function. The changes in cellular structure and
function in diseases. Causes of disease and its pathogenesis. Reaction of cells, tissues,
organ systems and the body as a whole to various sublethal and lethal injuries.
B) Systemic Pathology
The study of normal structure and function of various organ systems and the
aetiopathogenesis, gross and microscopic alterations of structure of these organ systems in
disease & functional correlation with clinical features
Haemathology

(iii) Iron stain
(iv) PAS stain
(v) Acid last stains
(vi) Any other stains needed for diagnosis
