"Pus bonum et laudabile"transl. from Latin: pus good and laudableThe accumulation of neutrophil polymorphs within the extracellular space is the diagnostic histological feature of acute inflammation.High-magnification of pus in the lumen of the appendix. Pus consists of living and degenerate neutrophil polymorphs together with liquefied tissue debris.The neutrophil is the main cell to mediate the effects of acute inflammation. If tissue damage is slight, an adequate supply is derived from normal numbers circulating in blood. If tissue damage is extensive, stores of neutrophils, including some immature forms, are released from bone marrow to increase the absolute count of neutrophils in the blood. To maintain the supply of neutrophils, growth factors derived from the inflammatory process stimulate division of myeloid precursors in the bone marrow, thereby increasing the number of developing neutrophils.The main cellular events in acute inflammation, all of which are caused by chemical mediators, are as follows:The normally inactive endothelium has to be activated to allow adhesion of neutrophils. Normally inactive neutrophils have to be activated to enhance their capacity for phagocytosis, bacterial killing, and generation of inflammatory mediators. Neutropllils have to develop the ability to move actively, in a directional fashion, from vessels towards the area of tissue damage.http://medweb.bham.ac.uk/http/mod/3/1/a/cellular.html 8 x PUS = OctoPUShttp://www.garycmartin.com/images/octopus_look.jpgikod
