Clinical examination revealed several plaques and striated white lesions on the tongue and in the left and right buccal mucosae
(Figure 1(b)) and an exophytic tumor with a smooth whitish surface on the left buccal mucosa.
Microscopically, foamy macrophages are generally confined to the lamina propria mucosae
of the colorectum; the muscularis mucosae
or submucosa is rarely affected.
When the border of the lesion is clearly distinguishable in terms of color (e.g., atrophic and nonatrophic mucosae
have a different color), it is easy to determine the extent of atrophy.
We also evaluated NO and TNF-[alpha] production by these colonic mucosae
using Griess method and ELISA, respectively.
The muscularis mucosae
allow local movements of the mucosa independent of other movement of the digestive tract, increasing contact of the lining epithelium with food.
Epithelium Lamina propria Fundic part of Keratinized stratified Loose connective tissue stomach squamous epithelium separating the muscularis mucosae
from epithelium, no glands, small capillaries Body of stomach The mucous membrane is Loose connective tissue folded to form gastric with cores of it entering pits.
Oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF) is a chronic, progressive, scarring, high risk precancerous condition of oral mucosa seen primarily in Indian subcontinent, southeast Asia, Taiwan, southeast China and Papua New Guinea.1 It was first described by Schwartz (1952) as he found this condition of oral mucosa including palate and pillars of oropharynx first in five Kenyan women named this as "Atrophia Idiopathica Tropica Mucosae
Lipoid proteinosis (LP), also known as Hyalinosis cutis et mucosae
or Urbach-Wiethe disease, is an uncommon, autosomal, recessively inherited disorder.
Lactobacillus johnsonii and Lactobacillus mucosae
are anaerobic, Gram-positive, rod-shaped, non-sporogenic, and lactic acid-producing bacteria, which can be found in human and animal gastrointestinal tract as well as in some fermented foods (Roos et al., 2000; Pridmore et al., 2004).
Objective: To study the structural and functional changes of maxillary sinus mucosae
of patients with odontogenic maxillary sinusitis and to improve the therapeutic effects.
Normally, calretinin is present in intrinsic nerves of the muscularis mucosae
and lamina propria, whereas in HD, this staining pattern is lost.
It recommends that at least five biopsy specimens (two from the greater and lesser curvatures of the corpus, one from the incisura angularis and two from the larger and lesser curvatures of the antrum) with mucosa and muscularis mucosae
represented in each biopsy be evaluated.
