Human pathology can be defined as the study of the disease processes, body’s response to the disruption of normal tissue structure. It deals with the concept of understanding the cell injury, inflammation, growth disorders, wound healing etc. It helps in understanding how organ system fails during disease and injury. This study of disease mechanism from clinical and research perspective is increased when compared with another field of pathological study.

Dermatopathology is a combination of dermatology and pathology which focus on the study of cutaneous disease at the microscopic and molecular level. Sometimes dermatologists need to do skin biopsy which is examined under microscope to find out exactly the cause of disease. Biopsies also need specialized testing like immunofluorescence, immunohistochemistry, electron microscope, flow chemistry and molecular pathogenic analysis. Dermatopathology cases may sometimes include melanoma, and other skin disorders, infectious and pediatric diseases.

It also includes the treatment of blood disorders and malignancies. It mainly focusses on the lymphatic organs and bone marrow. Hematologists are responsible for treating the organs that are fed by the blood cells, including the lymph nodes, thymus, lymphoid tissues and spleen.

Medical Microbiology can be defined as the branch of applied microbiology that deals with the study of the microorganisms which cause infectious diseases. It includes diagnosis, prevention and treatment of infectious diseases. Microorganisms plays a vital role in the field of biotechnology and its industrial applications. Recent research has increased in the field of diagnostic microbiology which is used for the diagnosis of infectious diseases. Medical microbiology also involves the study of beneficial microbes which is helpful in combating infectious diseases and promoting health.

Chemical pathology is the study and investigation of the biochemical bodily fluids such as blood, urine and cerebrospinal fluids. By understanding how and where the body’s chemistry or process has changed one can understand the cause of disease and it can be easily diagnosed and monitored. Chemical pathology is one of the best field which brings together science and medicine.

Immunopathology can be defined generally as the branch of medicine that deals with the immune response which is associated with the diseases. It can also be defined as the study of the pathology of various types of organisms, organ systems and diseases with respect to the immune response and immunity. Scientists in this field bring vast development such as vaccines, antibodies, therapeutics and diagnostics.
