__________ is growth of cells, while ___________ is increase in the number of cells. Both can be physiologic or pathologic.

Hypertrophy; hyperplasia

2

______ is the shrinkage of cells.

Atrophy

3

Metaplasia is the __________.

reversible change in which one adult/differentiated cell type is replaced by another adult/differentiated cell type.

4

The esophagus is usually _______ tissue, but can undergo metaplasia in response to reflux.

stratified squamous epithelium

5

Metaplasias are named for the ________.

tissues that they differentiate to, not the tissues they arose from

6

The two types of reversible cell injuries that we need to know are _________.

cellular swelling (from disrupted ion pumps) and fatty changes (accumulated lipid vacuoles, not adiopocytes)

7

The two types of irreversible cell injuries that we need to know are __________.

apoptosis and necrosis

8

Pyknosis is _____.

nuclear shrinkage and increased basophilia

9

Karyorrhexis is _________.

nuclear fragmentation

10

Karyolysis is __________.

nuclear dissolution

11

Coagulative necrosis is characterized by _______.

dead cells that are pale; architecture in place for several days; found in MIs

12

Liquefactive necrosis occurs when ________.

the cytolytic enzymes released by leukocytes in response to a bacterial or fungal infection digests surrounding tissue

13

Caseous necrosis is a result of ___________.

tuberculotic granulomas

14

Caseating necroses are distinguished from liquefactive necroses by the presence of ______ in caseating necroses.

necrotic debris

15

Activated pancreatic lipases reacting with fats to produce fatty acids that precipitate with calcium is a form of necrosis called ________.

fat necrosis

16

The mechanism of fibrinoid necrosis is characterized by _________.

complexes of antibodies getting stuck in vascular endothelium, which then reacts with fibrin
