Types of Inflammation

Inflammation is divided in to acute and chronic inflammation according to the duration and the inflammation cell types.
a) Acute Inflammation: Acute inflammation is of relatively short duration, lasting for minutes, several hours, or a few days, and its main characteristics are the exudation of fluid and plasma proteins and the emigration of leukocytes, predominantly neutrophils. Acite inflammation is the immediate and early response to tissue damage and destruction.

Major events in acute inflammation-
A. Hyperemia
B. Exudation
C. Cellular exudation
D. Emigration of leukocytes

b) Chronic Inflammatory Response
Change may occur in blood picture as a result of a chronic inflammatory I reaction. There will be anemia if there is blood loss (ulcerative state), lymphocytes (due to the immune stimulus), leucopenia (because of utilization of leukocytes) or more usually, leukocytes (because of stimuli for leukocyte production) with Europhilia and eosinophilia. The rise globulin/albumin ratio (due to stimuli for globulin production plus loss of albumin in the inflammatory exudates) result in an increase in erythrocyte sedimentation rate.
