interstitial tissue n.
See connective tissue.
When the interstitial tissue alone develops excessively it is known as an infiltration.
Gangrene or post-mortem decomposition may lead to the presence of air in the interstitial tissue of the lung.
The physical conditions of the interstitial tissue or the intercellular substance vary greatly in density.
The interstitial tissue frequently is permeated with edema, as we should expect from gross appearances.
If an interstitial tissue is digested it becomes a question of how much of this tissue undergoes hydrolysis.
The interstitial tissue is always affected, and exudation, proliferation and formation of fibrous tissue occur.
