mellicious: pink manicure (TB - Pam)
(Because it's just too much of a mouthful to pass up:)

glomerulonephritis
Inflammation of the kidney primarily involving the glomeruli. Occurs in both acute and chronic forms.

I don't know about you but this definition is not enlightening me too much, since I don't know what glomeruli are. I have been checking into this and they seem to be capillaries that serve some sort of purpose involving filtration.


You may can tell that I haven't started the kidney/urinary chapter full-bore just yet. I am more or less ready to go with it tomorrow; I took both the first anatomy test and the latest medical terminology test today and made a 92 and a 98 respectively. The anatomy test had much harder questions but there were fewer of them so I guess it evens out. The medical terminology test was on respiration and digestion; next we're onto the urinary tract (thus the choice of vocabulary term) and then the male reproductive system. Should be interesting. I think in Anatomy it's going to be the integumentary system next: the skin. They go in different orders but will have to start overlapping at some point!
