and traces the morphological changes in a cell that are responsible
for a disease in an organ. As cells undergo alteration, their
change in function is studied in respect to its deviation from the
Course presentation includes the response of cells, tissues and
organs to disease and injury; the normal and adapted cell;
degeneration and necrosis, inflammation, fluid and hemodynamic
derangements; neoplasia; immune-pathology; systemic, environmental
and nutritional disease. Lecture discussions are supplemented by a
study of gross and microscopic specimens
PATHOLOGY II (12 CREDITS)
Pathology II applies the basic concepts learned in Pathology I
to continue the study of pathologic basis of disease using a
physiologic system, or organ-based approach. This course covers red
