Week 4

Lecture outline

Tissues may recover from injury/stress through repair and regeneration, or respond through cellular adaptation. If the insult persists, then chronic inflammation may occur leading to long term damage.

Chronic inflammation 4

Created by Prof. Mike Dixon

Male age 69

Tissue: Lung

This man had worked for many years in an iron foundry. He had a long history of obstructive airways disease and died in respiratory failure as a consequence of chronic bronchitis and emphysema.

This slice of lung shows emphysema associated with multiple foci of carbon deposition (anthracosis). On close examination a fine nodularity in the areas of anthracosis was discovered. The section is taken from an area of emphysema and nodularity.
