CASEATION

Written by

A process which takes place in the tissues in TUBERCULOSIS and some other chronic diseases. The central part of a diseased area, instead of changing into pus and so forming an ABSCESS, changes to a firm cheese-like mass which may next be absorbed or may be converted into a calcareous deposit and fibrous tissue, and so healing results in the formation of a scar.
