Raffaella Morotti, MD, is a specialist in pediatric pathology, a subspecialty dedicated to the diagnosis of diseases that affect children. She serves as director of pediatric pathology and associate director of the autopsy service for Yale Medicine.

Dr. Morotti’s work encompasses the diagnosis of malignant tumors in children, particularly blastomas and sarcomas, types of cancer that originate in the body in different ways. It also includes diagnosis of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and liver. Dr. Morotti has a specific passion for and expertise in cholestatic diseases in infants and children—diseases that result when the flow of bile from the liver is reduced or blocked. 

In addition, she is a perinatal pathologist with rare expertise in a unique field dealing with fetal malformations, placenta pathology, and perinatal autopsy.

Dr. Morotti says she is guided by the knowledge that children’s bodies are different than adult bodies. “The philosophy that guides pediatric pathology is the same one that guides the pediatric specialty in general and relies on the understanding that children are not little adults,” Dr. Morotti says. “They have specific diseases that call for dedicated physicians with specific training.”
