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 may ooze from cuts or from areas of infection or inflammation.

Exudate: A fluid rich in protein and cellular elements that oozes out of blood vessels due to inflammation and is deposited in nearby tissues. The altered permeability of blood vessels permits the passage of large molecules and solid matter through their walls. The vessels weep or sweat.
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) ...

Scarring: Hydrocolloid dressings are typically changed every 3 or 5 days, but the massive production of ~s sometimes requires that these dressings be reinforced with absorptive dressings. More expensive than hydrocellular dressings, alginate-based dressings are very useful here.
In a sore throat with typical ~s very suggestive of streptococcal pharyngitis, a throat culture may be all one needs before starting definitive antibiotic therapy. In the more difficult cases, screening for streptococcal antigens (streptozyme test and ASO titer) might be indicated.
In the setting of infection, it can become quite red, frequently covered with a yellow or white ~ (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 ~s and pharyngeal hyperemia with a strawberry tongue are common. Hypotension leads to multiple organ system dysfunction. Desquamation of the palms, soles, fingers, and toes occurs 2 to 4 weeks after the onset of the illness.
In general, pleural fluid is classified as ~ (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 (~) 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 ~ 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 ~ 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 ~, which eventually leads to thickening of the synovium; ...
Small leaks of fluid from damaged blood vessels (~s).
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.
New abnormal blood vessels may grow from damaged blood vessels.
[#footnote-reference-4 *] all moxifloxacin concentrations were measured 3 hours after a single 400 mg dose, except the abdominal tissue and ~ concentrations which were measured at 2 hours post-dose and the sinus concentrations which were measured 3 hours post-dose after 5 days of dosing.
This can lead to bleeding (hemorrhage) and fluids, cells, and proteins leaking into the area (~s).
There can be a lack of oxygen to surrounding tissues (hypoxia) or decreased blood flow (ischemia).

CMV retinitis can be diagnosed by examination of the retina using a hand-held opthalmoscope. The doctor will see tell-tale haemorrhages (bleeding) and ~s (fluffy spots) on the retina.

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 (~) builds up, it can cause a detachment of the retina and loss of vision. [See figures 1 and 2].
