Attilio Orazi, MD, FRCPath, Vice Chairman for Hematopathology

Giorgio Inghirami, MD, Director of Immunopathology Laboratory

The Division of Hematopathology at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medicine is one of only a handful of laboratories in the country and the largest in the Tri-State area offering highly integrated subspecialized pathology diagnostic services related to hematological disorders. The team processes nearly 4,000 in-house specimens each year and an additional 1,000 consultation specimens. With an internationally recognized faculty, the Division offers an unsurpassed level of expertise, state-of-the-art scientific analysis, and personal attention. Difficult cases are discussed in a consensus conference among multiple expert hematopathologists. All of our faculty are board-certified in anatomic pathology, clinical pathology, hematology, and/or molecular genetic pathology.


Bone marrow biopsy shows a proliferation of both mature and immature eosinophils in a patient with chronic eosinophilic leukemia associated with FIP1L1-PDGFRA rearrangement.

Guided by the vision and leadership of Attilio Orazi, MD, we offer referring physicians the speed and accuracy of results required to meet the needs of their patients. Physicians receive a single, comprehensive hematopathology report containing detailed diagnostic and prognostic information. For patients with multiple samples, we use a systematic comparative evaluation to address specific issues such as disease progression and response to treatment.

Those seeking a second opinion receive clear, evidence-based interpretation that takes into account the patient's clinical presentation and disease history. This approach is especially important in neoplastic pathology of the lymph nodes, bone marrow, and spleen, in view of the complicated diagnostic algorithms necessary to apply the current World Health Organization classification. Our pathologists are available to discuss findings by telephone and often speak with clinicians to discuss a comprehensive interpretation and the full implications of the diagnosis.

Our pathologists are involved nationally and internationally in professional societies and organizations to advance their field. They have also been consistently recognized in New York Magazine's "Best Doctors in New York" issue, Castle Connolly's renowned America's Top Doctors-New York Metro Area Edition, and in the "Super Doctors" list published in the New York Times magazine.

Their commitment to education keeps them up to date on the latest advances. The Division offers a highly competitive one-year ACGME-approved Hematopathology Fellowship. Pathologists, pathologists in training, and medical oncologists/hematologists may participate in an annual Tutorial on Neoplastic Hematopathology, held each January, which is designed to update physicians on the latest advances in the field.
