collagenosis

 [kol″ah-jĕ-no´sis]
collagen disease.

col·la·gen dis·ease

, collagen-vascular disease
a group of generalized diseases affecting connective tissue and frequently characterized by fibrinoid necrosis or vasculitis; in some collagen diseases, auto-immunization, particularly antinuclear antibodies, has been shown and circulating immune complexes are found. The term is not entirely acceptable because there is no evidence that collagen is primarily involved; "collagen" was once synonymous with "connective tissue" rather than describing a specific fibrinous protein in that tissue.
See also: connective-tissue disease.
