What is lymphoid hyperplasia?

What is lymphoid hyperplasia?

Lymphocyte expansion: Lymphocyte hyperplasia is an increased number of lymphocytes in a tissue. It is often a normal response to infection or chronic inflammation. Hyperplasia involves the expansion of numerous cells in response to a stimulus. This is unlike lymphoid malignancies, which involve autonomous growth starting from a single genetically abnormal cell. ...Read more

What is erythroid hyperplasia? What causes it?

What is erythroid hyperplasia? What causes it?

Usually RBC loss: Bone marrow has precursor cells for mature blood cells. The precursors for red cells are called erythroid cells. These cells multiply to produce more red cells. The multiplication process is called hyperplasia. It occurs when body tries to make up for lost red cells. Lost by bleeding or excessive destruction by hemolysis. ...Read more

What can cause hyperplasia of the pituitary gland?

What can cause hyperplasia of the pituitary gland?

Pituitary: Are you reading a path report? Hyperplasia means proliferation of cells. Pituitary cells can do this for many reasons. Normal physiology, eg. Lactating, pregnancy, growth spurt during teens. If you are hypothyroid, your pituitary will increase TSH -cells. Abnormal hormone production (prolactin, ACTH, GH) would involve hyperplasia. The path report must be correlated with the overall picture. ...Read more

What is pseudointimal hyperplasia? What is the treatment for it?

Restenosis: This is the process by which stented arteries may narrow, or restenose. It is cause by accumulation of myofibroblasts at the stent site, and may cause stent failure at any arterial site, such as coronary arteries. Treatment is difficult, without simply placing another stent. Prevention is attempted by use of novel stent material. ...Read more

What is atypical hyperplasia of the breast? What symptoms do you get?

What is atypical hyperplasia of the breast? What symptoms do you get?

See below: Atypcal hyperplasia can be a marker of pre-cancerous changes of the breast. A person with this finding may need a surgical biopsy to remove a portion of the breast tissue to be sure all is benign, or close monitoring. There would be no symptoms from this condition, and likely no breast lump associated with it either.

Could you explain what is a adrenal hyperplasia?

Could you explain what is a adrenal hyperplasia?

CAH?: Do you mean congenital adrenal hyperplasia? There are adult forms of this. It occurs when there is an enzyme defect in adrenal steroid synthesis such that excess adrenal androgens are made. In extreme cases, female babies are born with male-like genitalia. In mild forms, it looks like pcos in adulthood. Treatment can be complicated, and should be by an endocrinologist (medicine or gyn). ...Read more

What does simple neuroendocrine hyperplasia in the antrum mean?

What does simple neuroendocrine hyperplasia in the antrum mean?

Need followup: Hyperplasia is the first of 3 stages in the process of tumor formation, the next stage is dysplasia and then the neoplasia = tumor. There are a few types of neuroendocrine cells in the stomach, depending on which area of the stomach, those in the antrum are G and D cells. So, neuroendocrine hyperplasia of the antrum means that some of those cells are undergoing abnormal proliferation (growth). ...Read more

What is atypical epithelial hyperplasia and hyperorthokeratosis?

What is atypical epithelial hyperplasia and hyperorthokeratosis?

Description of skin: Hyperorthokeratosis means that the surface layer of the skin is thickened (extra layers of keratin) and hyperplasia means that there is an increased growth of the cells. The adjective "atypical" means that microscopically the appearance of these cells is not quite normal, although likely they are not abnormal enough to diagnose cancer or a precancerous change. Check with your doc to follow-up. ...Read more

Can you tell me what is congenital adrenal hyperplasia in simple words?

Can you tell me what is congenital adrenal hyperplasia in simple words?

Yes: These people have a gene that makes it hard to make the necessary hormone cortisol, and the molecules get shunted into producing masculinizing hormones instead. The adrenals are big. In mild cases, it simply produces extra body hair in women. In severe cases, a little girl's genitals are ambiguous from birth, or a little boy reaches puberty at a very early age. ...Read more

Virilization: In the classic form newborn girls will often have ambiguous looking genitalia because of intrauterine exposure to their own overproduction of androgens. Can't really see it in a newborn boy. In non-classical early pubic hair in both sexes can be presenting feature. As kids grow older other things may warrant checking like recalcitrant acne (both sexes) or irregular periods/hirsutism in girls. ...Read more

What exactly is atypical hyperplasia of the breast?

What exactly is atypical hyperplasia of the breast?

Irregular Cells: Atypical hyperplasia (ah) is the term used to describe the development of abnormal cells in the breast. These cells may originate from the breast ducts (atypical ductal hyperplasia) or the lobules (atypical lobular hyperplasia). Ah is not cancer, but it increases the risk of developing breast cancer. Therefore patients with a diagnosis of ah often require more frequent breast cancer screening. ...Read more
