spContent=Care about the diseases, is to respect our lives. Therefore, we need to know the principles of diseases, which is just the purpose of pathology,recognizing the occurrence and development of the diseases. We want to disclose what have attacked the patients, and how have they protected them from the injuries. Our organs, tissues, and cells have recorded the morphological events what have happened to them. 对疾病的关注,也是对生命的敬畏。因此,我们需要知道疾病的“道理”,而病理学就涉及疾病发生发展这个“道理”。我们想明确这些病人曾经遭遇什么打击,机体又是如何与之抗衡的。我们的器官、组织和细胞通过形态学的变化记录了这一系列事件。
