A term used in the context of intra-abdominal inflammation and regarded as synonymous with the terms hyperplastic hyaline peri-splenitis, peri-colitis, peri-hepatitis. Frosting may be regarded as a nonspecific response of the serosa to any 'slow' (and untreated) chronic inflammation—e.g., that caused by tuberculosis within the abdominal cavity
