study of disease including any abnormal changes seen in the body
the pattern of the bodys response to some form of injury
study of the causes of the disease process
disease developes according to the mechanism of injury, sequence of events
observed changes seen in the patient
establishing manifestations is done by?
patient: their history including chief complaint.
HCP: observation of abnormal changes. i.e. skin changes, swelling
objective testing or procedures
testing- involves analysis of specimens
procedure - is more in depth testing
4 events of inflammatory response
- 1.alterations - in blood flow vascular permeability
- 2.migration- circulating white blood cells
- 3.phagocytosis- digestions of dead cells
- 4.repair- regeneration
five cardinal signs of acute inflammation
- rubor- redness
- loss of function
accumulation of abnormal amounts of fluid in the inter cellular tissue space or body cavities
interference of blood supply
localized area of ischemia necrosis or dead tissue
rupture of a blood vessel
trapped blood within tissue
minute amount of trapped blood
trapped blood smaller than 1-2cm
Larger than 1-2cm
Body reactions to pathologic conditions?
reduction in size/number of cells with decrease function
failure of normal development results in abnormal small size
increased number of tissue cells
increased in overall size of cells
changs in cellular structure from normal to abnormal
abnormal development of tissue, can precede a malignant change. associated with prolonged/chronic inflammation or irritation
Alterations of cell growth
CH 1 pg 9
benign tumors usually consist of cells that resemble?
tissue of origin
8 benign tissue discussed in textbook pg7
- 1. chondroma
4 malignant tumors
- 3.squamous cell carcinoma
malignant tumor spread by?
seeding or lymphatic and/or hematogenous (blood) routes
staging/grading describes its
degree of malignancy
