Primary antibodies for immunohistochemistry CE/IVD - Pediatric pathology
Perinatal/paediatric pathology is a medical subspecialty with particular expertise in diseases affecting the placenta, fetus, infant and child. Although many conditions that affect adults also affect children, pediatric pathology includes many conditions found only in patients younger than 18 years of age. One group of conditions involving the infant population is congenital anomalies. A malformation is a congenital anomaly due to an intrinsic defect in development. A disruption occurs when a normally developing organ is secondarily damaged by another process. A sequence is a collection of several anomalies, all of which are due to one malformation, disruption, or deformation. Finally, a syndrome is a group of related anomalies. An other group is the pediatric cancers or childhood cancers. Childhood cancers include many that also occur in adults. Leukemia is by far the most common, representing about 33% of childhood cancers, brain tumors represent about 25%, lymphomas represent about 8%, and certain bone cancers (osteosarcoma and Ewing sarcoma) represent about 4%.
