Galen, the Alexandrian physician redactor, a few hundred years later added functio laesa, Latin for "loss of function," as the fifth aspect or consequence of inflammation.
This inflammation response can be quite aggressive, and manifest as the five cardinal signs of inflammation recognized ages ago: redness, heat, swelling, pain and loss of function, classically referred to in Latin as rubor, calor, tumor, dolor, and functio laesa.
