The National Registries

The Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP) has as one of its objectives the running of numerous separate registries of pathology that are co-sponsored by national medical, dental, veterinary, or other organizations. These registries co-operate under the name "American Registry of Pathology" and may be consulted if diagnostic problems arise. The registries are depositories for both common and unusual specimens and data and as such serve as resources for and collecting points of other pertinent information. The organization of the American Registry of Pathology and the names of registrars are shown in Table 16-2. Address correspondence to:

American Registry of Pathology Armed Forces Institute of Pathology 14th St & Alaska Ave NW Washington DC 20306-6000 Phone: 202-782-2143; Fax: 202-782-4567

Many additional national and international registries have been organized that are not members of the American Registry of Pathology. All of these registries collect material for scientific purposes but also provide scientific consultations. The names and addresses of these registries generally can be obtained from the appropriate scientific societies. A comprehensive, alphabetical directory of these organizations has been published in the Journal of the American Medical Association 1999;282:390-396.
