Pathology is the study of the nature of disease, including its causes, development and consequences. Pediatric pathology is unique insofar as it is at the intersection of disease and development. An integral part of Boston Children's Hospital's commitment to providing your child with the best possible care is determining why your child needs medical care. Our Pathology Department is dedicated to answering that question.

Available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the Department of Pathology at Boston Children's Hospital is one of the largest services of its kind in the world. Our team studies blood, tissue, body fluids and other samples to diagnose and treat children's diseases.

  • To provide the highest quality diagnostic pediatric pathology services

  • To educate the next generation of leaders in pediatric pathology
