Pathology Collection

General pathology was taught in Tübingen by Professor Oskar E. Schüppel (1837–1881) since 1867. An independent institute was established in 1874. Pathology is of central importance in the indirect care of patients, which is why it forms an essential part of clinical medicine. Tissue structures can be visualized with the aid of various staining techniques. Together with special molecular pathological methods, diseases can be diagnosed. This allows predictive statements that help to implement a therapy tailored to the patient's needs.

The pathological collection of the University of Tübingen consists of almost 40 specimens fixed in formalin. They date from 1950 to 1980 and show mainly malformations of fetuses and uteri.
