Penn Cutaneous Pathology Services offers extensive expertise, high quality and timely diagnoses coupled with exemplary customer service. In addition, Penn Cutaneous Pathology Services is also dedicated to the education and training of current and future physicians. By sending your specimen to Penn Cutaneous Pathology Services, you support the educational mission of the Penn Dermatology Department at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, effectively investing in the future of dermatology and dermatopathology simply by referring biopsy specimens. What’s more, you receive access to our Joint Commission-accredited lab, featuring all of these impressive services:
- Our lab is staffed by experienced American Society of Clinical Pathology-certified histotechnologists.
- Our state-of-the-art laboratory provides prompt, reliable results and the highest level of quality and service.

- Pathologists are available to discuss the diagnoses and assist with planning for follow up care.
- Test results from Penn Cutaneous Pathology Services are available within 24 hours in most cases, and are provided by fax, mail, web portal or electronic interface with EMR systems.
- Penn’s dermatopathologists and oral pathologist have over 50 years of combined experience, with extensive knowledge of:
- Benign and malignant skin tumors
- Bullous disorders
- Cutaneous lymphoma
- Hair disorders

If, for any reason, Penn cannot be your primary lab of choice, we ask you to consider sending just ONE DAY’s worth of specimens each week. By committing to ONE DAY for PENN, you not only gain access to outstanding quality and service to ensure an accurate diagnosis, but you can support ongoing educational programs in dermatology. These specimens provide the foundation of a rich learning environment for trainees and also afford the resources to foster educational training programs within the department.
