The Danish Pathology Register (LRP) is a national register which contains detailed information about pathological examination of tissue and cell samples conducted in the hospital and in the primary sector in Denmark.

LRP was established in 1997 as a supplement to other disease registration for the purpose of using data in the register for prevention and research. In addition, LPR's data is used fx also as a basis for analyzes of resource utilization in hospital treatment and in addition to data in The Cause of Death Registry and the IVF Register. LRP is updated daily and includes data from 1970 but since the register only became national in 1997, the data is not complete before that date.
