histologic accommodation

(redirected from pseudometaplasia)

accommodation

 [ah-kom″ah-da´shun]
adjustment, especially adjustment of the eye for seeing objects at various distances. This is accomplished by the ciliary muscle, which controls the lens of the eye, allowing it to flatten or thicken as is needed for distant or near vision.
Flattening and rounding of lens during accommodation.
absolute accommodation the accommodation of either eye separately.
amplitude of accommodation range of accommodation.
histologic accommodation changes in morphology and function of cells following changed conditions.
negative accommodation adjustment of the eye for long distances by relaxation of the ciliary muscle.
positive accommodation adjustment of the eye for short distances by contraction of the ciliary muscle.

his·to·log·ic ac·com·mo·da·tion

change in shape of cells to meet altered physical conditions, as the flattening of cuboidal cells in cysts as a result of pressure.
Synonym(s): pseudometaplasia

En el epitelio conjuntival se evidencia una pseudometaplasia escamosa secundaria a un proceso inflamatorio, alteraciones en las microvellosidades, persistencia de las celulas caliciformes, aumento de los filamentos metaplasmaticos debido a una mitosis aumentada por proliferacion; estos hallazgos histopatologicos encontrados en el epitelio conjuntival del pterigio demuestran la gran proliferacion, inflamacion y alteracion producidas por la luz ultravioleta.
