Inflammatory cytology: how to classify inflammation according to possible etiology
Inflammatory lesions are frequently encountered in clinical practice. For effective treatment, knowledge of the etiology of the inflammation is mandatory. With cytological examination an etiological agent can often be found or the mechanism leading to the inflammation can be incurred from the inflammatory cell population.
In this video, we will illustrate how an inflammatory process is recognized and classified into one of four possible patterns, which then will lead us towards a list of differential diagnoses.
