Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0009782

NCI Thesaurus Code: C26729  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Disease or Syndrome

NCIt Definition: A non-neoplastic or neoplastic disorder that affects the connective tissue.

MEDLINEPLUS Definition: 

Connective tissue is the material inside your body that supports many of its parts. It is the "cellular glue" that gives your tissues their shape and helps keep them strong. It also helps some of your tissues do their work. Cartilage and fat are examples of connective tissue.

There are over 200 disorders that impact connective tissue. Some, like cellulitis, are the result of an infection. Injuries can cause connective tissue disorders, such as scars. Others, such as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Marfan syndrome, and osteogenesis imperfecta, are genetic. Still others, like scleroderma, have no known cause. Each disorder has its own symptoms and needs different treatment.

NICHD Definition: A disorder characterized by abnormalities in one or more of the elements of the connective tissues, typically associated with genetic defects.

CSP Definition: deviation from or interruption of the normal structure or function of the connective tissue.

CSP Definition: determination of diseases of the tissues that support or bind other tissues based on symptoms, medical history, risk factors, and clinical tests.

MSH Definition: A heterogeneous group of disorders, some hereditary, others acquired, characterized by abnormal structure or function of one or more of the elements of connective tissue, i.e., collagen, elastin, or the mucopolysaccharides.
