Pediatric Pathology

UPMC Content 3

Some diseases and cancers affect children differently from adults. Some diseases and tumors, in fact, affect only children.

Your child's pediatrician may order a tissue sample or a blood sample if he or she suspects that a certain disease or condition may be present.

The Role of the Pediatric Pathologist

Our pediatric pathologists are highly skilled and experienced in testing and examining samples for childhood diseases and diseases that can affect people of any age.

They share their test results and interpretations with your child's doctors so that treatment can begin as soon as possible.
