This form of tonsillitis is very frequent, and is often confounded with parenchymatous tonsillitis or with tonsillar abscess.
It is high in fevers and in parenchymatous forms of nephritis.
parenchymatous tonsillitis may subside by resolution, or, as is quite frequent, terminate by suppuration.
In many instances the parenchymatous inflammation is a direct extension of the lacunar inflammation.
So the parenchymatous cells of the cortex lying outside the sclerenchymatous ring are divided into small isolated areas.
The epidermal cells are almost oblong, while the parenchymatous cells are large, irregular and contain large quantities of tannin.
Chronic glossitis, like acute glossitis, may be superficial or parenchymatous.
The inferior lobe, when emptied of its contents, was so much excavated that the parenchymatous substance felt light and flaccid.
The cortex has a number of fairly large air-cavities separated by bands of parenchymatous cells.
These are separated from the epidermis by several layers of parenchymatous cells.
1650s, Modern Latin, from Greek parenkhyma "something poured in beside," from para- "beside" (see para- (1)) + enkhyma "infusion," from en- "in" + khein "to pour" (see found (v.2)). In ancient physiology, the stuff that was supposed to make up the liver, lungs, etc., which was believed to be formed from blood strained through the capillaries and congealed.
parenchyma pa·ren·chy·ma (pə-rěng'kə-mə)
The distinguishing cells of a gland or organ, contained in and supported by the stroma.
The basic tissue of plants, consisting of cells with thin cellulose walls. The cortex and pith of the stem, the internal layers of leaves, and the soft parts of fruits are made of parenchyma. In contrast to sclerenchyma cells, parenchyma cells remain alive at maturity. They perform various functions, such as water storage, replacement of damaged tissue, and physical support of plant structures. Chloroplasts, the organelles in which photosynthesis takes place, are found in parenchyma cells. Compare collenchyma, sclerenchyma.
