fatty infiltration n.
The abnormal accumulation of fat droplets in the cytoplasm of cells.
These changes are atrophy with hemachromatosis (brown atrophy) or fatty infiltration and degeneration.
Two forms of fatty degeneration occur, either separately or combined—namely, fatty infiltration and fatty metamorphosis.
fatty infiltration is, however, very common in the centre as well as in the periphery of the lobules.
The exceptions occur both in fatty infiltration and fatty degeneration.
