Fibrinous Inflammation

  • Fibrinous Inflammation is a general morphological pattern of inflammation, whether acute or chronic. Fibrinous inflammation occurs when there is more extensive leakage of fluid from vasculature, thus allowing for passage of large plasma proteins, especially fibrinogen into tissue. If the leakage is small, much of the escaped fibrinogen will be removed during the resolution phase of inflammation. However, if leakage is extensive, the mass of fibrinogen is left in place and remodeled, ultimately evolving into fibrosis.
