Flashcards in Chapter 4 Integumentary Disorders Deck (31):
Scraping away of the skin my mechanical process or injury
Localized collection of pus
Inflammatory disease of the skin involving the sebaceous glands and hair follicles
Precancerous skin condition of horny tissue formation that results from excessive exposure to sunlight
Congenital hereditary condition characterized by partial or total lack of pigmentation in the skin, hair, and eyes
Basal cell carcinoma
Epithelial tumor arising from the epidermis. It seldom metastasizes but invades local tissue, common in individuals who have had excessive sun exposure
Infection of the skin, mouth (thrush) or vagina caused by yeast type fungus
Skin infection composed of clusters of boils caused by staphylococcal bacteria
Inflammation of the skin and subcutaneous tissue caused by infection, characterized by redness, swelling, and fever
Injury with no break in the skin, characterized by pain, swelling, and discoloration (bruise)
Non infectious, inflammatory skin disease characterized by redness, blisters, scabs and itching
Slit or crack like sore in the skin
Painful skin node caused by staphylococcal bacteria in a hair follicle (boil)
Death of tissue caused by loss of blood supply followed by bacterial invasion, a form of necrosis
Inflammatory skin disease caused by herpes virus characterized by small blisters in clusters. (Herpes simplex and zoster)
Superficial skin infection characterized by pustules and caused by either staphylococci or streptococci
Invasion of pathogens in body tissue
Cancerous condition starting as purple or brown papules on the lower extremities that spreads through the skin to lymph nodes and internal organs
Torn, ragged edged wound
Any visible change in tissue resulting from injury or disease. It includes sores, wounds, ulcers, and tumors.
Invasion of body tissue by methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus, a strain of common bacteria that has developed resistance to methicillin and other antibiotics. It can produce skin and soft tissue infections and sometimes bloodstream infections and pneumonia, which can be fatal if not treated.
Invasion into the skin and hair by lice
Chronic skin condition producing red lesions covered with silvery scales
Chronic disorder of the skin that produces erythema, papules, pustules, and broken blood vessels
Skin infection caused by itch mite, characterized by papules eruptions that are caused by the females burrowing into the outer layer of skin and laying eggs. Severe itching
Disease characterized by chronic hardening of the connective tissue of the skin and other body organs
malignant growth that develops from scalelike epithelial tissue. Significant potential for metastasis. Frequent cause is chronic exposure to sunlight.
Squamous cell carcinoma
Systemic lupus erythematatosus
Chronic inflammatory disease involving the skin, joints, kidneys, and nervous system. This autoimmune disease is characterized by periods of remission and exacerbations.
Fungal infection of the skin. This fungi may infect keratin of the skin, hairs and nails. Tinea capitis (scalp), tinea corporis (body) and tinea pedis (foot) (athletes foot). Ringworm
Itchy skin eruption composed of wheals (an individual hive) of varying sizes and shapes. Sometimes associated with infections and with allergic reactions to food, medicine or other agents.
