Bruise

DESCRIPTION

An injury involving rupture of small blood vessels, a bruise causes discolouration without a break in the overlying Skin. Bruises are associated with external and internal causes. If the blood is pooled or trapped in tissue or an organ, the term haematoma is used. A common example is a blood blister. With Capillary Fragility, the bruising is called an ecchymosis; the blood enters subcutaneous tissues, causing discolouration of the overlying Skin.
