  • The tissues and organ in an animal’s body must be supported and held in position. Connective tissueIt may be defined as group of elements derived largely from embryonic mesoderm and composed of cells,fibres and amorphous substance(intercellur substance secreted by cells
  • Pain that emanates from the soft connective structure of the mouth and face .pain from these structures are predominantly inflammatory and related to other sign of inflammation by which the source of pain may be identified
  • Soft ct pain is considerably more constant then muscle pain and it usually follow an inflammatory time and frame. When inflammatory exudate is confined the pain develops a pulsatile quality and increased in intensity when evacuated by penetration,rupture,or surgical drainage ,pain intensity drops dramatically and the pulsatile quality disappears.
  • Cellulitis mean inflammation of cellular space mainly purulent inflammation of loose CT. Most purulent inflammatory conditions involve deeper soft tissue of the face and mouth are designated as cellulitis. Specific terms may designate certain types and location of cellulitis involvement the intensity of pain depend largely on the acute rate of spreading distension of tissue and confinement of inflammatory exduate.
  • Acute cellulitis is usually evident from swelling and pain no diagnostic problem occur as long as the inflammation is located in accessible region. When this conditions involve the sublingual area it is location relative to the mylohyoid muscle largely determine the clinical feature and behaviour
  • Supra hyoid muscle cellulitis lifts the tongue and interfere with speech and swallowing
  • Infra hyoid muscle cellulitis cause external swallowing in the submental and sub mandibular area and may interfere with respiration
  • Palatal cellulitis cause swelling that interfere with speech and swallowing
  • The buccal cellulitis cause external swelling of the face that easily spread to the eyelids. Spreading and location of the swelling related to that anatomical arrangement of the facial muscle and to the anchorage of facial barriers
  • Pterygomandibular space cellulitis cause trismus as the result of medial pterygoid muscle involvement . Similar inflammation of masseter muscle also dos like that.
  • Cellulitis cause characteristics facial swelling above the zygoma and trismus as the result of temporal muscle involvement .
  • The Taj Mahal is located in Agra, India. Taj Mahal to be one of the present new seven wonders of the world. The Taj Mahal attracts from 2 to 4 million visitors annually, with more than 200,000 from overseas. Most tourists visit in the cooler months of October, November and February.

    • collagenous fibers

  • Cellulitis is a example of Connective tissue pain
    An acute, diffuse, and suppurative inflammation of loose connective tissue, particularly the deep subcutaneous tissues, and sometimes muscle, which is most commonly seen as a result of infection of a wound, ulcer, or other skin lesions.
