Exudate is fluid, such as pus or cleak fluid, that leaks out of blood vessels into nearby tissues. The fluid is made of cells, proteins, and solid materials.

exudate: Fluid discharged through vessel walls and collecting in adjacent tissue. It has a high content of protein and cellular debris. (Compare with transudate.)
Exudate: A fluid rich in protein and cellular elements that oozes out of blood vessels due to inflammation and is deposited in nearby tissues.
2. Exudate pleural effusions are caused by inflammation of the pleura itself and are often due to disease of the lung.
Examples of exudate causes include:

Exudates extend throughout the CSF, particularly to the basal cisterns, resulting in the following:
Damage to cranial nerves (eg, cranial nerve VIII, with resultant hearing loss)
Obliteration of CSF pathways (causing obstructive hydrocephalus) ...
Powdered exudate from various Acacia species, especially A. senegal (Leguminosae). It forms mucilage or syrup in water. Gum arabic is used as a suspending agent, excipient, and emulsifier in foods and pharmaceuticals.

Alginate: Made of non-woven fibers derived from seaweed, alginate forms a gel as it absorbs exudate.
Tests: A throat swab of the exudate will be cultured to determine whether the pharyngitis is bacterial and to identify the specific causative bacteria, as well as the antibiotic sensitivity.

Inflammation, swelling, or buildup (exudate) in the ear canal may block sound from moving to the middle ear. Hearing usually returns on its own after the infection goes away.
Middle ear infection (otitis media).
Fluid chemistries help distinguish transudates from exudates; multiple criteria exist, not one of which perfectly discriminates between the two.

In a sore throat with typical exudates very suggestive of streptococcal pharyngitis, a throat culture may be all one needs before starting definitive antibiotic therapy.
There are two types of fluid that can result in pleural effusion: transudate and exudate fluids. A transudate fluid is a clear fluid that forms when the factors that influence the formation and absorption of the pleural fluid is altered.
Bacterial contamination of tissue exudate; pus.
Sociopath also known as Antisocial personality disorder (APD) involves a history of chronic antisocial behavior that begins before the age of 15 and continues into adulthood.
In the setting of infection, it can become quite red, frequently covered with a yellow or white exudate (e.g. with Strep. Throat or other types of pharyngitis).
The tonsils lie in an alcove created by arches on either side of the mouth.
Conjunctival hyperemia without purulent exudates and pharyngeal hyperemia with a strawberry tongue are common. Hypotension leads to multiple organ system dysfunction.
In general, pleural fluid is classified as exudate (seen in inflammatory, cancerous, or infectious conditions) or transudate (fluid that has leaked from blood or lymph vessels for various reasons).
This results in an accumulation of yellowish or white fluid (exudate) at the back of the eye that may extend to the macula (the centre of the retina).
Tests used for this condition typically include cultures of exudate to identify the pathogen, typically S. aureus and, occasionally, beta-hemolytic streptococcus in acute dacryocystitis and S. pneumoniae or C. albicans in chronic disease.
Typically it presents as exudate ranging from liquid and pale cream pus to yellowish solid plaques of caseous material under the skin of the abdomen and/or in the leg. Many affected birds have no other lesions and are reasonably well grown.
If untreated, and sometimes in spite of treatment, the joint pathology goes through four stages: (1) proliferative inflammation of the synovium with increased exudate, which eventually leads to thickening of the synovium; ...
Small leaks of fluid from damaged blood vessels (exudates).
Small bleeds from damaged blood vessels (haemorrhages).
Blood vessels may just become blocked. This can cut off the blood and oxygen supply to small sections of the retina.
[#footnote-reference-4 *] all moxifloxacin concentrations were measured 3 hours after a single 400 mg dose, except the abdominal tissue and exudate concentrations which were measured at 2 hours post-dose and the sinus concentrations which were ...
This can lead to bleeding (hemorrhage) and fluids, cells, and proteins leaking into the area (exudates).
There can be a lack of oxygen to surrounding tissues (hypoxia) or decreased blood flow (ischemia).

How the test is performed
The health care provider cleans the opening of the urethra (at the tip of the penis) with sterile gauze or cotton.
Material seeps into the retina and settles in the macula. This is called an exudate. Eventually the exudate disappears, but a scar takes its place. All people who have wet macular degeneration had dry macular degeneration first.
* blood, and
* purulent exudate - which is a pus-like liquid that has seeped through the walls of intact blood vessels (usually as a result of inflammation).

In this stage there may be hemorrhages (bleeding) in the retina with leakage of blood causing a "wet retina" or protein deposits (exudates) in the retina. As a consequence, the retina does not receive enough oxygen.
Depending on the cause, the excess fluid may be either rich in protein (exudate) or watery (transudate). These two categories help physicians determine the best way to treat the cause of a pericardial effusion.

The incubation period from the time of exposure to onset of symptoms is 6 weeks to 6 months. HBV is found in highest concentrations in blood and in lower concentrations in other body fluids (e.g., semen, vaginal secretions, and wound exudates).
This prevents the normal flow of blood, and allows fluid to leak out of the blood vessels causing a build up of fatty (lipid) material into the retina. If a large amount of fluid (exudate) builds up, ...
