Degeneration of cells and tissues

Degeneration of cells and tissues - eating disorders and metabolism in cells and tissues, causing the violation of their structure and function.
Degeneration of cells and tissues may occur under the influence of different factors: disorders of blood circulation to the body, diseases of the endocrine system, temperature changes, under the influence of toxic substances, toxinsformed in the body in infectious diseases, and so on
Degeneration of cells and tissues for the most part has a temporary character, and when you troubleshoot the cause of degeneration is restored normal tissue. The progressive degeneration of cells and tissues can lead to necrosis (see).
There are protein, fat, carbohydrate, vodyanoye, mineral dystrophy. Among the protein dystrophies are the most important amyloidosis (see), hyalinosis (see), granular dystrophy parenchymatous organs. When adipose degeneration of cells and tissues is either increased content of fatty substances in the cells, where they are in the norm, or the emergence of them where these do not occur. Vodianova (hydropic) degeneration of cells and tissues characterized by the appearance in the cells of air bubbles (vacuoles). When carbohydrate dystrophy cells and tissues glycogen (see) disappears from a cell where he is kept as the main energy material (for example, from the cells of the heart muscle), or it appears in the cytoplasm or the nuclei of cells, normally it does not contain (for example, in the nuclei of liver cells in diabetes). Mineral dystrophy - see Calcification.
