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 6

Created by Prof. Mike Dixon

Female age 59

Tissue: Stomach

This woman had a long history of 'indigestion' that had recently become more severe and sustained. Three days prior to admission she developed vomiting and had brought up a large quantity of blood (haematemesis). Endoscopy revealed a large actively bleeding ulcer in the posterior wall of the stomach. She underwent an emergency partial gastrectomy.

The posterior wall of the gastric antrum contains a large ulcer with evidence of recent bleeding from vessels in its base.
