The strong action of these digestive products can destroy the protective defenses of the mucous membranes of the stomach and duodenum, causing the lining to erode. The spiral shape of this organism helps it to burrow into the mucosa, weakening it and making it more susceptible to the action of pepsin and stom- ach acid. If left untreated, mucosal destruction produces a hole (perforation) in the wall lining with resultant bleeding from the damaged area. It is characterized 1) Inguinal hernia by profuse, watery diarrhea containing varying amounts of blood, mucus, and pus. Ulcerative coli- tis is distinguished from other closely related bowel disorders by its characteristic inflammatory pattern. The inflammation involves only the mucosal lining of the colon, and the affected portion of the colon is uniformly involved, with Figure 6-5.

Pathology 119 Diagnostic, Symptomatic, and Related Terms This section introduces diagnostic, symptomatic, and related terms and their meanings. Anorexia nervosa and a similar eating disorder called bulimia nervosa are discussed in Chapter 14. Failure of the liver to produce albumin (a protein that regulates the amount of fluid in the circulatory system), combined with portal hypertension forces fluid to pass from the circulatory system and accumulate in the peritoneum. It may also be caused by toxins, infectious agents, metabolic diseases, and circulatory disorders. In this disor- der, functional hepatic cells are replaced by nonfunctioning f ibrous tissue that impairs the flow of blood and lymph within the liver, resulting in hepatic insuff iciency. It may also be due to surgery, such as gastric resection and ileal bypass, or antibiotic therapy. Obesity may be due to excessive intake of food (exogenous) or metabolic or endocrine abnormalities (endogenous). Morbid obesity is a disease with serious psychological, social, and medical rami- f ications and one that threatens necessary body functions such as respiration. After surgery in adults, a stomach tube remains in place and obser- -osis: abnormal condition; increase vation is maintained for signs of hemorrhage or blockage of the tube.

The medial compartment of the knee showed an inferior surface, posterior and mid-medial meniscal tear that was flipped up on top of itself.

The delayed spot planar images demonstrate focal fusiform uptake involving 50% to 75% of the tibial diaphysis width. It is our opinion that with continued excessive, repetitive stress, the rate of resorption will exceed the rate of bone replacement. This will lead to weakened cortical bone with buttressing by periosteal and endosteal new bone deposition.
