hyalinization of vessel wall

hyalinization of vessel walls

Collagenous fibrous tissue in old scars may appear hyalinized (see : hyaline change ), but the physiochemical mechanism underlying this change is not clear.

In long-standing hypertension and diabetes mellitus, the walls of arterioles, especially in the kidney, become hyalinized, owing to extravasated plasma protein and deposition of basement membrane material.
