Pathology is the study of disease. A pathologist is a doctor who identifies the causes of diseases by examining body tissues and fluids under microscopes. Most of their work is done in the laboratory. They do not interact with patients very frequently but they can be culpable in medical negligence cases if they fail to accurately diagnose an illness or disease and that causes another doctor to give an improper or ineffective treatment plan. In these cases the diagnostic error can lead to the illness or disease advancing to a later stage where treatment options are more limited or taxing on the patient.
