  1. fibrosis(Noun)

    The formation of excess fibrous connective tissue in an organ


  1. Fibrosis

    Fibrosis is the formation of excess fibrous connective tissue in an organ or tissue in a reparative or reactive process. This can be a reactive, benign, or pathological state. In response to injury this is called scarring and if fibrosis arises from a single cell line this is called a fibroma. Physiologically this acts to deposit connective tissue, which can obliterate the architecture and function of the underlying organ or tissue. Fibrosis can be used to describe the pathological state of excess deposition of fibrous tissue, as well as the process of connective tissue deposition in healing.

U.S. National Library of Medicine

    Any pathological condition where fibrous connective tissue invades any organ, usually as a consequence of inflammation or other injury.
