Pathology | Autopsy Pathology

The Department of Pathology provides autopsy services for Boston Children’s Hospital patients. Autopsy services can be extended to non-Boston Children’s Hospital patients provided that certain conditions are fulfilled. Postmortem examinations are performed only with the permission of the patient’s family or guardian and are conducted in a manner that accommodates their wishes and without interfering with memorial services. For additional information regarding post mortem examinations, please contact the Department of Pathology.
