Last week's #MysteryAnatomy structure was Areolar Connective Tissue.  #Areolar #connective #tissue is the most widely distributed type of connective tissue in the body. Areolar--which comes from the #Latin meaning "open space"--connective tissue is appropriately named as its fibers are loosely arranged thereby allowing ample open space between them. Areolar tissue contains fibers of two types: #elastic #fibers, which are made of the protein #elastin, are quite thin but extremely stretchable…

What is Erdheim-Chester Disease?  Erdheim-Chester Disease is an extremely rare disorder that can affect many different organs of the body. It is characterized by excessive production and accumulation of specific cells whose normal function is to fight infections. These cells, which are called histiocytes, infiltrate the loose connective tissue of the body. As a result this tissue becomes thickened, dense and fibrotic. Multiple different organs can be affected. Unless successful treatment is…

Connective tissue. It's all over the place, really...

Connective tissue connects body parts. Performs many functions: protecting, supporting, & binding together other body tissues.The Bone is in fact a connective tissue, with a matrix hardened by minerals.

"The space inside the root canals is filled with a highly vascularized, loose connective tissue, the dental pulp. The dental pulp is the tissue of which the dentin portion of the tooth is composed. The dental pulp helps complete formation of the secondary teeth (adult teeth) one to two years after eruption into the mouth. The dental pulp also nourishes and hydrates the tooth structure, making the tooth more resilient, less brittle and less prone to fracture from chewing hard foods."…

If a tooth’s pulp (nerve and blood supply) becomes infected or inflamed, root canal treatment may be the only way to save your tooth.

The following flow chart depicts the different types of connective tissue and how they are characterized. Connective tissue is characterized with more matrix than cell body, varying vascularity, and often specialized to support, bind, and protect organs. They are the most abundant and diverse tissue type. They can be categorized as fibrous (loose and dense connective tissue), supportive (cartilage, bone), or fluid (blood). See individual pictures for more detail.

This tissue is adipose tissue (catagorized under loose connective tissue) and is commonly referred to as fat. This tissue holds triglycerides and is good for insulation.
