Sorry, no etymologies found.
With a common designation these diseases are called spongioform encephalopathies because of the vesiculation that occurs in brain cells showing pathologic changes.
They begin as small maculo-papules, as papules, or as minute nodules in or on the skin, and gradually become small pea-sized, with a tendency to slight vesiculation or pustulation at the central part.
The lesions begin as red spots, discrete or in groups, rapidly exhibit vesiculation, and later umbilication; the contents become milky, dry to crusts, which fall off and leave small pit-like scars.
In some cases the lesions may become pustular and, on the other hand, the eruption may be abortive, stopping short of full vesiculation.
In exceptional instances, the inflammatory process may be sufficiently intense to produce vesiculation, usually at the summits of the papules -- _erythema vesiculosum_; and in some instances, blebs may be formed -- _erythema bullosum_.
Since, alone of the IRG proteins assayed, Irgm1 has never been found at the parasitophorous vacuole, it is clear that this IRG protein is not directly involved in the observed vesiculation and disruption of the parasitophorous vacuole membrane.
Phosphorus burns on the skin are deep and painful; a firm eschar is produced and is surrounded by vesiculation.
Data from EM studies of ER fission in other cell types have not provided conclusive evidence to rule out either complete vesiculation or beading of the ER From our EM analysis of ultrastructural changes caused by short-term NMDA and glutamate treatment it can be concluded that somatic RER may indeed maintain connections between ER vesicles.
The undermined, dusky border with hemorrhagic vesiculation is virtually pathognomonic for this condition. [
