Pathology is a special discipline in medicine with focus on the study of diseases at system, organ, tissue, and cellular levels. Exposure to occupational and environmental agents can lead to organ and tissue injuries. Acute exposure often leads to acute tissue injury which can be fatal while chronic exposure can cause repetitive tissue damage and the response to the damage. Toxic substances can cause specific pattern of tissue injury and response which can be recognized at tissue level. Therefore, recognizing the specific patterns of tissue injury and responses can help arrive correct diagnosis which is important for management as well as establishing causation. This session will focus on the pathological changes caused some common occupational and environmental agents, including asbestos and PAHs. Correlation between pathological changes and clinical manifestations will be discussed.
1. To define the pathological changes caused by common environmental agents.
2. To understand the underlying mechanisms lead pathological changes.
3. To correlate pathological changes with clinical presentation.
