Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0015645

NCI Thesaurus Code: C50559  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Disease or Syndrome

NCIt Definition: Inflammation process in fascia.

HPO Definition: Inflammation of fascia. [HPO:probinson]

FDA Definition: Inflammation of fascia.

NICHD Definition: Inflammation of the fascia.

MSH Definition: Inflammation of the fascia. There are three major types: 1, Eosinophilic fasciitis, an inflammatory reaction with eosinophilia, producing hard thickened skin with an orange-peel configuration suggestive of scleroderma and considered by some a variant of scleroderma; 2, Necrotizing fasciitis (FASCIITIS, NECROTIZING), a serious fulminating infection (usually by a beta hemolytic streptococcus) causing extensive necrosis of superficial fascia; 3, Nodular/Pseudosarcomatous /Proliferative fasciitis, characterized by a rapid growth of fibroblasts with mononuclear inflammatory cells and proliferating capillaries in soft tissue, often the forearm; it is not malignant but is sometimes mistaken for fibrosarcoma.
