Neuropathology is the branch of pathology deals with diseases in central and peripheral nervous tissue (pathology of brain, spinal cord, muscle, and nerve tissue) in adults and children. The primary concern is the diagnosis of brain tumors, and neuropathologists are often able to give a preliminary diagnosis to the neurosurgeon while the patient is still on the operating table. Neuropathologists are also responsible for post-mortem brain analysis, for example to categorize forms of dementia, investigate possible genetic conditions, and assess trauma. Neuropathologists put major part of research in neurodegenerative diseases disorders (Parkinson and Alzheimer diseases), neuro-oncology (genetics of tumors and classification of primary brain tumors, glial tumors and peripheral nerve sheath lesions associated with inherited syndromes) and vascular diseases (cerebral amyloid angiopathy). Neuropathology diagnoses samples including biopsies for oncology, inflammatory and infectious diseases.
