Reproductive Pathology

by Carlo Raj, MD, Mohammad Hajighasemi-Ossareh, MD, MBA

Reproductive pathology refers to the study of conditions that affect the genitourinary (GU) tract. The male and female GU tracts are regions specialized in reproduction via natural insemination. These tracts can be compromised in a variety of ways, including agenesis or malformation of structures, glandular dysplasia, and malignancy.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the pathophysiologies of conditions that affect the female and male GU tracts, STDs, diseases of the ovaries and testicles, and hormone-related ailments. Pregnancy complications will also be briefly discussed.

For optimal comprehension, the student should be familiar with the anatomy, embryology, and physiology of the GU tract, as well as the pathophysiology of inflammation and oncogenesis.

GU tract pathologies can arise potentially at any stage of a person’s life: newborns and infants can start showing signs and symptoms of congenital GU abnormalities, early or delayed puberty can become a burden for adolescents, STDs remain a major public health concern in sexually active teens and adults, and the potential for gonadal or cervical malignancy is constantly looming in particular cases.

A competent clinician must understand the pathophysiologies of GU tract pathologies to understand their manifestations on clinical examinations and also grasp the need to screen for particular conditions throughout a patient’s lifetime.

By Lopira M. on 18. November 2021 for Clinical Anatomy of Breast Cancer

The professor seems to be too cold and the video could have way more images and interactions. I don't like this kind of video
