General and Systemic Histopathology, C601&C602
    Infectious Diseases

    In this section we will be looking at some of the same slides we studied in the inflammatory and repair unit, but from a different point of view. When finished, you should be able to identify the general inflammatory patterns associated with bacterial, fungal, tubercular and viral infections. Although there are just a few slides to be reviewed, the basic patterns can be applied to many situations. When finished with this unit, you should understand the mechanism of injury and be able to identify common inflammatory patterns such as: acute and chronic inflammatory exudates, abscesses, granulomas and necrotizing processes. As slide 131 will show, finding the culprit may require some vigilance.
