The word Pathology derives its origin from the Greek words “Pathos” meaning “disease” and “Logos” meaning “study”. A pathological condition is the one that is caused by a disease, rather than occurring physiologically. Pathology includes the cause, epidemiology, pathogenesis, morphogenesis, and manifestations of the disease; the main role of a pathologist is the prognosis, diagnosis, treatment of the disease and patient care using novel techniques. There are four main types of disease: infectious diseases, deficiency diseases, genetic diseases ( hereditary and non-hereditary), and physiological diseases.
