The formation of fibrous tissue in a repair or reactive process, as opposed to formation of fibrous tissue as a normal part of the tissue or organ.
(adjective: fibrotic) A disease-related process in which normal tissue is gradually infiltrated with scar tissue, eventually leading to decreased organ function. Patients with chronic hepatitis C are at risk for developing fibrosis.
formation of fibrous tissue as a reaction or as a repair process; may occur due to treatment and/or disease
Scarring of the lungs due to breathing harmful dusts or chemicals such as crystalline silica. As the disease develops, the lungs begin to stiffen and become less flexible, making breathing more difficult.
Generation of fibrous tissue, such as in a scar.
Of a condition marked by the presence of interstitial fibrous tissue, especially in the mammary gland resulting from mastitis.
replacement of normal tissue with fibroblasts and scar tissue.
formation of scar-like (fibrous) tissue. This can occur anywhere in the body.
a process during which connective tissue becomes thicker and causes a scar. The thickening often occurs as a result of inflammation or injury.
Deposition of fibrous connective tissue in a localized site, during process of tissue repair or to wall off a source of antigen. The general name for accumulation of scar tissue in the lung.
The formation of scar tissue to replace normal tissue.
scarring in the lungs may affect oxygenation of blood.
An increase of fibrous tissue, tissues that contain or resemble fibers.
Formation of scarâ€“like (fibrous) tissue. Gâ€“H
Replacement of tissue by fibrous tissue (in this case heart muscle cells are replaced by fibrous tissue).
Formation of fibrous tissue, usually as a means of repairing inflammation or injury.
An abnormal condition in which fibrous connective tissue spreads over or replaces normal smooth muscle or other normal organ tissue.
scar formation resulting from the repair of tissue damage. If it occurs extensively in the liver, it is called cirrhosis.
Scar tissue that forms in reaction to an infection or injury. It can occur in the liver as a result of long-term inflammation.
formation of tissue containing a large amount of fibers of connective tissue proteins that typically occurs as part of a reparative process
The laying down of collagen rich connective tissue.
the spread of fiber like connective tissue over normal smooth muscle or other normal organ tissue.
Just means firm tissue, does not actually imply anything bad. back to pathology report
Scarring. Usually occurs after prolonged inflammation.
the spread of fibrous connective tissue over normal smooth muscle or other organ tissue, most commonly in the heart, lungs, and kidneys
The process the body uses to create scar tissue.
abnormal formation of tissue.
the growth of scar tissue due to infection, inflammation, injury, or even healing.
The replacement of normal tissue with scar tissue.
Scarring of the liver.
Formation of fibrous tissue that replaces the normal tissue eg scars
formation of fibrous tissue (scarring) in an organ as part of a repair or reactive process.
The formation of fibrous tissue. Fibrosis is caused by many factors including injury, inflammation and infection.
Formation of fibrous or scar tissue in place of normal tissue.
Formation of fibrous, scar-like tissue.
Thickening and scarring of connective tissue.
The formation of fibrous tissue; fibroid or fibrous degeneration.
The formation of fibrous tissue, often as a response to tissue damage.
A condition marked by the abnormal increase in the amount of fibrous connective tissue in an organ or tissue
Formation of excess fibrous (scar) tissue in an organ such as the liver.
the formation of new, fibrous connective tissue under the skin
The buildup of scar tissue.
formation of fibrous (scar) tissue after an injury
process by which inflamed tissue becomes scarred.
Formation of fibrous tissue as inflamed tissue becomes scarred.
The development of excessive scar-like fibrous tissue. Punctures caused by asbestos fibers can lead to fibrous scar tissue build-up in the lungs.
a buildup of scar tissue on the liver Back to previous page
Scarring or the development of excess fibrous tissue in the body.
Growth of fibrous tissue in the liver where there is usually liver cell damage or destruction. Fibrosis can lead to cirrhosis, an even more serious liver disease.
Abnormal increase in amount of fibrous tissue. Occurs as a side effect of radiotherapy. Makes the affected tissue less stretchy.
A condition marked by increased fibrous tissue that develops between the cells of various organs or tissues. It is a common feature of scleroderma and some other diseases. Fibrosis causes hardening or stiffening of tissues in the skin, joints, and internal organs.
Scar formation or scarring.
Scarring of the heart or other organs of the body. Within the conduction system of the heart, this scarring may cause heart block or other rhythm disturbances.
the formation of excessive connective scar tissue as an attempt to repair damage or as a reaction to foreign material (e.g. asbestos fibres)
Deposits of connective tissue as scar tissue. Sometimes in a healing process fibrosis may replace (parts of) the original tissue.
Increased formation of connective tissue in an organ.
a condition marked by relative increase in formation of interstitial fibrous tissue in any common region of the body (scar tissue is fibrous).
The formation of fibrous tissue (scarring); (idiopathic) pulmonary fibrosis is the chronic inflammation and progressive fibrosis of the pulmonary alveolar walls.
The growth of fibrous tissue.
An abnormal thickening and scarring of connective tissues.
A process producing scar tissue that forms as a reaction to injury or during a healing process.
The formation of fibrous connective tissue, usually as a consequence of inflammation.
Inflammation that results in the formation of fibrous tissue.
The replacement of infected tissue areas with fibrous connective or scar tissue.
overgrowth of fibrous tissue
The formation of fibrous (scar) tissue.
A condition within a tissue or an organ that is characterized by an increase in fibrous tissue.
Scar tissue that forms as a result of damage.
Development of fibrous tissue in an organ.
The scarring and stiffening of tissues.
