General and Systemic Histopathology, C601&C602
    Reproductive System Diseases

    The reproductive unit is fairly sizable, but then it includes both male and female reproductive disorders. Obviously, study the parts that apply to the section we are on at the time. As is probably evident by this time, we have tried to include representative examples of common disease processes, as well as a representative from each of the major disease categories.  I suspect by now you can recite these categories in your sleep, and perhaps you do.  I am talking about the really big groups of disease such as infectious, neoplastic, traumatic, autoimmune injury, nutritional etc. In the case of pathology of the reproductive system, we will focus on infectious and neoplastic processes. Keep in mind that in some situations the two are very much connected. (I am referring to HPV virus and epithelial malignancies of the reproductive system.)

    With regard to the male reproductive system, be sure you understand prostatic hyperplasia and cancer, prostatitis, testicular tumors and the difference between orchitis and epididymitis. Female reproductive disorders are a bit more involved. You will need to know about cervical cancer and dysplasia, ovarian tumors (benign and malignant), uterine tumors - both endometrial and myometrial - as well as a peculiar condition known as endometriosis. These conditions represent the basics, and if you master them you should be able to apply your knowledge to other related processes. Good luck.
