JPC Pathology Consultation

The JPC accepts cases, from U.S. military and Federal pathologists and clinicians (dermatologists, ophthalmologists, and neurologists) functioning as pathologists.

The JPC's Human and Veterinary Pathology Consultation Request Form must be completed in their entirety (previous editions are obsolete), a copy of the applicable submitting institution's pathology report(s) must be attached and the slides and/or blocks included with the case. The JPC's business is with the submitting pathologist. It is the policy of the JPC to retain H&E and other microscopic slides on permanent file.

The JPC does not accept non-federal civilian consultation cases on human tissue.
Please Note:
  1. The JPC does not accept Human cases involving Cytology with no tissue. Veterinary cases are accepted.
  2. The JPC does not have a Chemical Pathology Service and is unable to offer consultation on stones of any kind.
  3. THE JPC DOES NOT PERFORM FLOW CYTOMETRY
