Telepathology is the most recent addition to the pathologist's diagnostic tools. It is the acquisition of macroscopic and microscopic images for electronic transmission for diagnosis, consultation and/or education. With the addition of the personal computer at the pathologist's desktop, the stage has been set for one of the greatest advantages the Internet has to offer. Telepathology in India is in infancy, and we at PathoIndia (www.Pathoindia.com) have started a series of publication images from interesting cases in the form of weekly quiz. After cases are published, hundreds of pathologists from around the world are invited by e-mail to send in their diagnosis and comments. The responses to this quiz suggest that telepathology is catching on in the pathology community. Another intention of this series is to identify and select qualified international and Indian pathologists who would be willing to help colleagues from India requesting second opinions online.
