An inflammantion of the cellular or areolar tissue, esp. of that lying immediately beneath the skin.
A pattern of inflammation of the skin resulting from infection with bacteria.
Rapidly-spreading skin infection.
deep infection of the tissues characterised by oedema, warmth and tenderness.
a spreading inflammation of subcutaneous or connective tissues
is a skin infection produced by bacteria, leading to redness and swelling. Commonly, red streaks radiate from a site of previous skin injury toward nearby lymph glands.
inflammation of connective tissue under the skin, usually caused by a bacterial infection and potentially life-threatening
Diffuse inflammation, normally involving areas of loose connective tissue, such as the subcutaneous layer.
(sell-yoo-LITE-iss) ( listen) Acute, diffuse, spreading inflammation of the deep subcutaneous (under the skin) tissues and sometimes muscle, that causes fluid accumulation (edema) and pus formation. It may also be associated with abscess formation. Cellulitis is usually caused by infection of an operative or traumatic wound, burn or other lesion by various bacteria; group A streptococci and Staphylococcus aureus are the most common cellulitis-causing agents.
Inflammation of the subcutaneous, loose connective tissue.
An infection in tissue under the skin.
an inflammation of body tissue (especially that below the skin) characterized by fever and swelling and redness and pain
A skin infection caused by bacteria (usually streptococci); can lead to tissue damage and blood poisoning if untreated; characterized by fever, chills, heat, tenderness, and redness.
Inflammation of the tissues indicating a local infection; characterized by redness, edema and tenderness.
Occurs when bacteria infect the skin. Any form of skin breakdown will facilitate the development of cellulitis. Untreated cellulitis may lead to lymphatic damage and edema.
An acute, diffuse, spreading, edematous, suppurative inflammation of the connective tissues (deep subcutaneous) tissues and sometimes muscle, which may be associated with abscess formation.
inflammation of the connective tissue, in which watery exudate spreads through the interstitial and tissue spaces
The inflammation of an area of the skin (epithelial layer).
infection of the skin, usually caused by normal skin bacteria that get under the top layer of skin. Signs of infection include red, warm, tender skin, swelling, fever, and/or chills.
Commonly caused by the infection of a wound by various bacteria. An inflammation of the deeper layers of the skin (subcutaneous) and sometimes muscle, which can be as a result of abscess formation. Symptoms include fever, swelling, redness and pain.
An infection of the skin that causes it to become warm and tender and may also cause fever, chills, swollen lymph nodes, and blisters.
Infection of the skin and surrounding soft tissue.
a severe, spreading infection into the underlying connective tissue and tissue spaces; may have severe consequences and can be life-threatening
an inflammation of subcutaneous connective tissue.
Swelling and tenderness of an eyelid. Usually caused by irritation or infection. If pain or double vision occur, immediate visit to the eye doctor is necessary to rule out more serious infections.
a diffuse inflammation of connective tissue
Inflammation of tissue around the eye. Pre-septal cellulitis affects the lid and other "outer" areas of the eye, whereas orbital cellulitis affects the "inner" areas around the eyeball. Pre-septal cellulitis symptoms include a red, swollen lid, swelling around the eyes and eye or lid pain or discomfort. Orbital cellulitis symptoms include a bulging eye and ophthalmoplegia, as well as a red, swollen lid, swelling around the eyes, eye or lid pain or discomfort and a decrease in vision. An orbital cellulitis is an ocular emergency.
Inflammation of cellular or connective tissue.
infection of the skin or connective tissue
An acute spreading bacterial infection below the surface of the skin characterized by redness (erythema), warmth, swelling, and pain. Cellulitis can also cause fever, chills, and "swollen glands" (enlarged lymph nodes). Cellulitis is a clinical diagnosis based on the spreading involvement of skin and subcutaneous tissues with erythema, swelling, and local tenderness, accompanied by fever and malaise.

Diffuse inflammation resulting from (usually bacterial) infection of deep connective tissue, sometimes forming an abscess.
Cellulitis is a serious infection of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Abscesses and destruction of tissue will follow if the condition is not treated with antibiotics. Cellulitis is more likely to occur when skin is damaged, circulation is poor or when diabetes is present.
Soft tissue infection causing extensive, hard swelling, a potentially dangerous condition requiring immediate attention
A painful swelling of the soft tissue of the mouth and face resulting from a diffuse spreading of purulent exudate along the fascial planes that separate the muscle bundles.
An acute inflammation of the deep subcutaneous skin tissues and occasionally muscle. It is usually caused by infection from various bacteria. It is characterized by edema, or swelling, warmth, and tenderness.
an inflammatory process within solid tissues
spreading infection of the skin, subcutaneous tissues and sometimes muscles, manifested by swelling, pain and erythema
a bacterial infection of the skin that is characterized by swelling and tenderness.
is a bacterial infection of the skin characterized by redness, swelling and tenderness.
a diffuse inflammatory process within solid tissues characterized by edema, redness, pain and interference with function. Cellulitis often occurs in the loose tissues beneath the skin, but may also occur in mucous membranes and in muscle bundles surounding organs.
Cellulitis is an acute inflammation of the connective tissue beneath the surface of the skin. It is more wide-spread than a localized infection as seen in an ulcer or abscess. It causes the skin tissues in the infected area to become red, hot, painful and swollen.
The inflammation of soft tissue or skin (epithelial layer).
Cellulitis is an inflammation of the connective tissue underlying the skin, that can be caused by a bacterial infection. Cellulitis can be caused by normal skin flora or by exogenous bacteria, and often occurs where the skin has previously been broken: cracks in the skin, cuts, burns, insect bites, surgical wounds, or sites of intravenous catheter insertion. The mainstay of therapy remains treatment with appropriate antibiotics.
