  1. Image Upload
    • Fibrinous Transudate
    • increase in fibrin causes this shaggy coating. can occur between membranes and decrease mobility, such as in fibrinous pericarditis
  2. Image Upload
    • Serous Exudate
    • "like serum" - fluid filled cavity
    • this one is following a burn
    • Note that it's pretty much empty - use this to identify serous
  3. Image Upload
    Vascular Congestion and Stasis
  4. Image Upload
    • Large vesicle - bullae. most likely serous exudate
    • blackness - eschar
  5. Image Upload
    • subcutaneous bullae
    • normally contains an exudate. this one looks like it's purulent (good deal of fibrin in there. Purulent is fibrinous + PMNs)
  6. Image Upload
    Shaggy appearance up top indicates fibrinous exudate over the surface (in this case, of the heart). Due to the breaking of fine adhesions b/w visceral and parietal pericardium
  7. Image Upload
    Pseudomembrane of necrotic, inflammatory cells and fibrous jazz accumulated over the epithelial glands
  8. Image Upload
    Pale area is fibinous exudate that has caused the lung to consolidate with the darker, aerated region
  9. Image Upload
    Neutrophils (left) and fibrin (light pink, "chicken wire") within the alveolar spaces. Pneumonia
  10. Image Upload
    • Purulent Exudate is masking the gyral pattern of the brain.
    • Also see hyperemia
  11. Image Upload
    • Furuncle - skin abcess
    • Abscess with skin ulceration

    A bunch of these is a carbuncle. you'd see swelling and erythemia of the entire skin
