Chronic inflammation

Chronic inflammation
An inflammation that may begin with a relatively rapid onset or in a slow, insidious, and even unnoticed manner, tends to persist for several weeks, months, or years and has a vague and indefinite termination; results when the injuring agent (or products resulting from its presence) persists in the lesion, and the hosts tissues respond in a manner (or to a degree) that is not sufficient to overcome completely the continuing effects of the injuring agent.
