Spongiosis

Spongiotic reaction pattern is characterised by inter and intracellular oedema of the epidermis and elongation of the intercellular bridges. Progressive psoriasiform hyperplasia occurs with chronicity. In the past this reaction pattern was known as ‘eczematous tissue reaction’. The spongiosis may vary from microscopic foci to grossly visible vesicles. Inflammatory cells are present in the dermis and their distribution and type may aid in …
