The Molecular Pathology between Prevention and Care: the New Renaissance of Anatomic Pathology

The history of Anatomic Pathology is a fundamental part of the history of modern medicine. Giovanni Battista Morgagni and Rudolf Virchow, the fathers of modern medicine, were pathologists1. At the present, the Anatomic Pathology is based on multiple activities aimed to patients’ diagnostic care. The classical pathological results was based on ancillary macroscopic and microscopic diagnosis of the diseases, by using traditional methods of morphological investigation in order to identify the relationship between the pathogenic mechanisms and clinical experience – the so-called “evidence-based medicine”.
