    • One type of
    • mature cell is replaced

    • by another
    • type
    • example:
    • Epithelium or mesenchymal tissue

  46. what is DYSPLASIA?
    Deranged cell growth
    • Once stress is removed, recover
    • •Two main events:

    •Hydropic Swelling

    •Substance Accumulation
  48. hydropic swelling
    • :
    • Na-K pumps malfunction and Na accumulates within the cell.

    • This
    • pulls water into cell (osmosis) and the
    • cytoplasm is diluted. Mitochondria will become swollen.

    • This
    • can cause an entire organ to enlarge.
  49. Substances accumulate
    • in
    • the cells. The can be harmful because the accumulations are toxic OR because
    • they take up space needed for cellular functions.
    INJURY result from?
    • Extent
    • of injury depends in part on the duration and severity of assault and in part
    • on the prior condition of the cells.

    • Well nourished and
    • somewhat adapted cells may withstand injury better than poorly nourished or unadapted cells
  51. Types of accumulation
    •Excessive amounts of normal substances

    •Accumulation of abnormal substances

    •Accumulation of non-degradable substances

    •Most accumulations are reversible
  52. Abnormal substances
    • these are often produced by the cells. With diabetes,
    • neurons may take up too much glucose
    • which is changed to SORBITOL – this pulls water into cell. Excess water
    • interferes with impulse conduction.

    • Pigments may accumulate – some accumulation is normal
    • i.e. when we tan our skin accumulate melanin
  53. Non-degradable substances
    : Lead, pigments, coal dust, silica dust

    • Pigments
    • from tattoos, and natural
    • sources: bilirubin, lipofuscin (lipid rich age spot
    • pigment) hemoglobin, ferritin. Melanin
  54. Lead
    • will
    • get a blue lead line along the edge of the gums
  55. causes of cell injuries
    • - lack of oxygen

    • -most
    • common type of cell injury
    • : Ischemia

    shortage of O2 in air

    obstruction of respiratory system

    drop in # of RBC’s or hemoglobin

  56. cause of cell injuries
    •Free radicals
  57. what are free radicals?
    • Free
    • radicals are atoms or group of atoms that has an unpaired electron in its outer
    • orbit. They are very unstable and will enter into chain reactions and form
    • unstable bonds in important molecules in the cell. Will also produce more free
    • radicals. Get a cascade of reactions which produce more free radicals
    • Free radicals can denature proteins and inactivate
    • enzymes, damage cell membranes, disrupt chromosomes.

    • They are the
    • byproducts of normal reactions – especially during hypoxia
    They are also formed by exposure to UV light and X rays.

    • Toxicity of some drugs and chemicals can be attributed
    • to conversion of the chemicals to free radicals.

    • Recent research links them to cardiovascular disease,
    • diabetes mellitus, hypertension, macular degeneration and chronic heart failure
    • among others
  60. Free Radicals can be inactivated by
    antioxidants such as:
    vitamin C

    vitamin E

    beta carotene, etc

    also by enzymes
    • inactivate
    • free radicals. Vitamins C and E, beta carotene, albumin are some of the
    • antioxidants.

    • Some
    • enzymes in the body will break them down and some will spontaneously decay.
  62. Chemical agents in cell injuries:
    • Formaldehyde
    • Carbon tetrachloride
  63. what is Formaldehyde?
    • an
    • important chemical used widely by industry to manufacture building materials
    • and numerous household products
  64. what is Carbon Tetrachloride?
    • - High exposure can cause liver, kidney, and
    • central nervous system damage
  65. types of necrosis:
    • . Coagulative necrosis
    • Liquefactive necrosis
    • Caseous necrosis
    • Fat necrosis
    • Gangrenous necrosis
  66. Gangrenous necrosis result from what?
    • usually
    • results from severe hypoxic injury with blockage of major arties. Common in
    • lower leg and feet. Large mass of tissue is undergoing necrosis.
  67. fat necrosis results from?
    • Cellular
    • destruction is caused when lipases (enzymes which break down lipids) break down
    • triglycerides releasing fatty acids.

    • Calcium, magnesium
    • and sodium ions combine with fatty acids, making soaps
  68. Caseous necrosis cause
    • commonly
    • occurs as a result of a tuberculous pulmonary infection
  69. Liquefactive necrosis cause?
    • necrosis
    • commonly results from ischemic injury to cells in the brain. Dead brain tissue
    • is readily affected by liquefactive necrosis because
    • brain cells have a lot of digestive enzymes and lipids and there is little
    • connective tissue
  70. Coagulative necrosis cause
    • 1.occurs primary in the
    • kidneys, heart and adrenal glands. Usually caused by severe ischemia or
    • hypoxia.

    • Coagulation occurs
    • when proteins are in the cell are denatured
  71. what is Apoptosis?
    fallen apart.Normal replacement of worn out cells
