Inflammation, or phlogosis, is a non-specific innate defence mechanism that is a protective response to harmful stimuli, which may be physical (trauma, heat), chemical (acid, etc.), toxic or biological (bacteria, viruses, etc.). The ultimate function of this response is to eliminate the initial cause of cell injury or tissue damage.
When a harmful agent attacks the tissues it triggers a strong vascular reaction that serves to destroy, dilute and wall-off the agent, at the same time setting into motion a series of events that try to repair or replace the damaged tissue.
The main components of the inflammatory response are dilation of the blood vessels and increased vascular permeability, resulting in exudation of fluid from the vascular bed towards the injured tissue (oedema) and the accumulation of leukocytes at the inflamed site.
The signs of tissue inflammation are: redness due to increased blood flow in the area (rubor); swelling due to the oedema (tumor); heat (calor); pain caused by local biochemical events (dolor); loss of function of the affected area (especially if this is a joint) due to the pain and impaired functioning of the inflamed structures as a result of the inflammation (e.g. oedema) (functio laesa).
