Society for Pediatric Pathology

In Memory of Our Departed SPP Members

Eduardo Yunis, M.D. (1931-2019)

It is with great sadness that I report the passing of Eduardo Yunis, M.D., on October 12, 2019. Dr. Yunis was the President of the Society for Pediatric Pathology in 1984-85 and served as Chief of Pathology at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh from 1977 through 1998. Dr. Ron Jaffe, who advised us of this sad news, commented: “Those of us who worked or trained with him knew him as a deeply engaged human being and one of the finest pathologists ever.” Dr. Miguel Reyes-Mugica, the current Chief of Pathology at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, also remembers Dr. Yunis as a “remarkable pathologist.”
