Pathology diagnosis

  1. 1. Diagnosisa concise statement or conclusion concerning the nature, cause, or name of a disease.<br />(note: the accuracy of a diagnosis is limited by the evidence available for study)<br />
  2. 2. Differential Diagnosis (“rule-outs”)<br />A list of diagnoses that could account for the history, clinical signs or lesions in a case.<br />
  3. 3. Clinical Diagnosis<br />Diagnosis based on data obtained from the case history, clinical signs, and physical examination.<br />
  4. 4. Morphologic Diagnosis (lesion diagnosis)<br />A diagnosis based on the predominant lesion(s) in the tissue.<br />it may be macroscopic (gross) or microscopic (histologic) and describes the severity, duration,<br />distribution, location and nature (eg degenerative, inflammatory, neoplastic) of the lesion.<br />eg. severe, acute, locally-extensive, fibrinous bronchopneumonia.<br />
  5. 5. Morphologic Diagnosis (lesion diagnosis)<br />
  6. 6. Etiologic Diagnosis<br />a definitive diagnosis that names the specific cause of the disease.<br />
  7. 7. Disease (Definitive) Diagnosis<br />a specific diagnosis that states the “name of the disease”.<br />
  8. 8. Anatomic Terminology<br />ORGAN + OPATHY (disease of an organ; the etiology / pathogenesis is not entirely clear).<br />Hepatopathy- any disease of the liver.<br />Nephropathy - any disease of the kidney.<br />
  9. 9. Anatomic Terminology<br />ORGAN + OSIS (noninflammatory disease of an organ, often used if degeneration / necrosis)<br /> e.g. Hepatosis - esp. when degeneration &/or necrosis of hepatocytes.<br />Nephrosis - esp. when degeneration &/or necrosis of tubules.<br />
  10. 10. Anatomic Terminology<br />ORGAN + ITIS (an inflammatory disease of the organ).<br />Hepatitis- inflammation of the liver.<br />Nephritis - inflammation of the kidney.<br />Lung + itis = ? <br />
  11. 11. Anatomic Terminology<br />pneumonia is the term typically used for inflammation of the lung, not "pneumonitis“ or lungitis<br />
