Pathophysiology or physiopathology is a convergence of pathology with physiology. Pathology describes the conditions during the diseased state whereas physiology is the discipline that describes mechanisms operating within an organism. Pathology describes the abnormal condition, whereas pathophysiology seeks to explain the physiological processes because of which such condition develops and progresses. In other words, pathophysiology defines the functional changes associated resulting from disease or injury.
