17 Cards in this Set

  • Front
  • Back
Name the most likely reason why/where you would see the following in a cytological /histological slide.

Neutropils
-Acute infection
-Foreign Body
Eosinophils
-Inflammatory reaction
-Immunological disease
-Allergic reaction
-Parasite reaction
Lymphocytes
-Inflammatory reaction - subacute and chronic (after neutrophils)

(Purple stained cells dominated by nucleus)
Plasma Cells
-Sites of constant antigenic challenge (GI tract & URT)
-Often with lymphocytes

(Cells with expanded cytoplasm and halo next to nucleus - golgi complex secreting Ab)
Macrophages
-Inflammation (termed Granulomatous)

Fxn: Phagocytosis
Mast Cells
-Inflammation (source of vasoactive amines)

(Special Stain-Toluidine Blue picks up metachromatic granules in cells)
Fibroblasts
-Healing
-Repair

(Synthesize and lay down collagen)
Hemosiderophage
Macrophage that has phagocytised a RBC.

*Indicative of heammorrhage
Pyogranulomatous
Mixed puss (neutrophils) and macrophages
Giant Cells
Multinucleated macrophages
Supperative/Purulent
Dead or live neutrophils and dead host cells. Often bacterial in origin.

(Ex: Abscess)
Fibrinous
Thin eosinophilic meshwork (yellow, soft coagulum). Seen in some inflammatory reactions.

*Increased vascular permeability leads to escape of plasma proteins containing fibrinogen, which forms fibrin.
Serous
Fluid, albumen and other plasma proteins that leak out during the early part of inflammation.

Ex: blisters, synovitis, serous rhinitis.
Mucous/Catarrhal
Hypersecretion of mucous secreting cells in respiratory and GI tract.
Empyema
Puss filled hallow visera or pleural cavity.
Define Morhphological Change.
Structural changes in cells or tissues in association with disease.
Define Pathogensis.
Sequence of event following exposure to an inciting agent or event.
