Describe the normal appearance of cerebrospinal fluid, serous fluids
, and synovial fluid.
The highly reflective RPE band on OCT imaging appears thickened or damaged in CNVM with further disruptions above and/or below the RPE indicating serous fluid
, haemorrhage or lipid exudates (see Figure 3) (8)
The clinician transfers the serous fluid
to a glass slide, either by direct application of the slide to the lesion, or by transferring the fluid with a bacteriologic loop or the edge of a cover slip.
The lower pressure causes serous fluid
to leak out of the blood vessels in the membranes of the middle ear and collect within the middle ear cavity, setting the stage for inflammation.
The presence of serous fluid
is indicative of a pathologic condition.
Fine-needle aspiration cytology of the suboccipital mass was reported as serous fluid
containing inflammatory cells, including neutrophils.
All but one locule contained clear, serous fluid
which cumulatively approximated 18 L in volume.
The larvae reside in the dermis and result in painful, erythematous papules that may drain serous fluid
There is no pericardial reaction to either serous fluid
or to blood in the pericardial sac.
Eleven milliliters of turbid serous fluid
were aspirated from the abscess surrounding the fibular lesion.
The cyst was unilocular and contained serous fluid
