I am thinking this question. Thrombosis can result in

  1. organisation of thrombus,
  2. sepsis
  3. thromboembolism,
  4. fibrinoid swelling
  5. adiposity.

I fibrinoid swelling (edema) (4) can occur. Also, I think (3) thromboembolism can occur and also (1) organisation of thrombus.

What can thrombosis result in?

1 Answer 1


Fibrinoid swelling involves necrosis and swelling so no. Organisation of thrombus refers to some very large space of organising thrombus in different ways - so no, since there is an exact mechanism under. Based on my interpretation of Robbins -book.

The correct answer is 3. thromboembolism. Thromboembolism is a combination of thrombosis and its main complication, embolism.
