Standard textbooks of pathology and numerous other resources consistently list 3 lesions under the term arteriosclerosis: (1) atherosclerosis, (2) Monckeberg medial calcific sclerosis, and (3) arteriolosclerosis. (1-3) These lesions generally share 3 features: (1) they result in stiffening of arterial vessels; (2) they cause thickening of the arterial wall; and (3) in the past, they have been considered "degenerative" diseases.
His contemporaries, Gull and Sutton, (9) introduced the term "arterio-capillary fibrosis" to characterize this phenomenon, which would soon thereafter be referred to as arteriolosclerosis.
