(mī'krog-lē-ō'sis),
Presence of microglia in nervous tissue secondary to injury.
[microglia + G. -osis, condition]

microgliosis

accumulation of microglial cells as a reaction to injury to the parenchyma of the central nervous system, a characteristic of nonsuppurative encephalomyelitis.

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder, characterized by deposition of amyloid beta, neurofibrillary tangles, astrogliosis and microgliosis, leading to neuronal dysfunction and loss in the brain.
La enfermedad de Creutzfeldt-Jakob (ECJ) hace parte de las encefalopatias espongiformes transmisibles (EET), que se caracterizan por mostrar astro y microgliosis, ausencia de respuesta inflamatoria linfocitica y acumulacion de particulas proteicas llamadas priones [1].
