Pathology is the science of disease. It represents the connection between basic sciences and clinical medicine, whose goal is to study structural and functional changes in the cells and tissues of organs or organ systems involved in a certain disease. Pathology, as a science of diseases, in addition to studying morphological changes, also studies the mechanisms of occurrence and development of reactions in cells and tissues under the influence of harmful factors that cause the disease. When studying the origin and development of the pathological process and disease, the cause that initiated the pathological process and the mechanisms involved in its development must be taken into account. It is therefore important to know that, by studying cells, tissues, and body fluids using microbiological, immunological, and biochemical methods, pathology assists physicians in clinical practice in making diagnoses and appropriate treatment of diseases. In skin pathology, diseased states are skin tumors and other skin diseases.
