Flashcards in cellular adaptation Deck (11):
cellular responses to persistent sublethal injury, physical or chemical. Reversible
Increase in size of tissue due to increased number of component cells.
Proliferation of prostatic glands and stroma resulting in enlargement of the gland with obstruction of urine flow through the bladder outlet.
NODULAR HYPERPLASIA, PROSTATE GLAND
Pathogenesis of NODULAR HYPERPLASIA, PROSTATE GLAND
unknown; altered normal ratio of testosterone to estrogen that develops in the elderly.
Usually secondary to chronic stimulation by corticotropin due to
Bilateral diffuse or nodular hyperplasia of adrenal glands
ADRENAL CORTICAL HYPERPLASIA
Proliferative lesions of the endometrium usually resulting from hyperestrinism
constitutes of morphologic & biologic continuum
increased size of an organ due to increased size of component cells
Pure hypertrophy without hyperplasia occurs where
only in heart and skeletal muscle
Diminution in size or function of organ due to decrease in size of cells.
Conversion of one differentiated (mature) cell type into another
