Herpes simplex

A group of acute infections caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 or type 2 that is characterized by the development of one or more small fluid-filled vesicles with a raised erythematous base on the skin or mucous membrane. It occurs as a primary infection or recurs due to a reactivation of a latent infection. (Dorland, 27th ed.) [from MeSH]

Adrenocortical carcinoma, hereditary

Adrenocortical carcinoma (ADCC) is a rare but aggressive childhood tumor, representing about 0.4% of childhood tumors, with a high incidence of associated tumors. ADCC occurs with increased frequency in patients with the Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome (130650) and is a component tumor in Li-Fraumeni syndrome (LFS; 151623). [from OMIM]

Interferon

Human interferons have been classified into 3 groups: alpha, beta, and gamma. Both alpha- and beta-IFNs, previously designated type I, are acid-stable, but they differ immunologically and in regard to some biologic and physiochemical properties. The IFNs produced by virus-stimulated leukocytes (leukocyte IFNs) are predominantly of the alpha type. Those produced by lymphoblastoid cells are about 90% alpha and 10% beta. Induced fibroblasts produce mainly or exclusively the beta type. The alpha- and beta-IFNs differ widely in amino acid sequence. The gamma or immune IFNs, which are produced by T lymphocytes in response to mitogens or to antigens to which they are sensitized, are acid-labile and serologically distinct from alpha- and beta-IFNs. (from OMIM 147570) [from NCI]

Pathogenesis

The pathologic, physiologic, or biochemical mechanism resulting in the development of a disease or morbid process. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
195936
Concept ID:
C0699748
Pathologic Function
7.

Cytotoxicity

The adverse effect of some iatrogenic therapies. It is an accepted side effect in radiation therapy where the desired effect is to kill rapidly growing tumor cells. In the killing of tumor cells, other cells that are rapidly growing e.g hair, mucous membranes are also killed. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:

Concept ID:
C0596402
Cell or Molecular Dysfunction

Chronic

Slow, creeping onset, slow progress and long continuance of disease manifestations. [from HPO]

Herpes

Any inflammatory skin disease caused by a herpesvirus and characterized by the formation of small vesicles in clusters. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:

Concept ID:
C0019340
Disease or Syndrome
11.

Interferon

Proteins secreted by vertebrate cells in response to a wide variety of inducers. They confer resistance against many different viruses, inhibit proliferation of normal and malignant cells, impede multiplication of intracellular parasites, enhance macrophage and granulocyte phagocytosis, augment natural killer cell activity, and show several other immunomodulatory functions. [from MeSH]

Viral eye infection

Infections of the eye caused by minute intracellular agents. These infections may lead to severe inflammation in various parts of the eye - conjunctiva, iris, eyelids, etc. Several viruses have been identified as the causative agents. Among these are Herpesvirus, Adenovirus, Poxvirus, and Myxovirus. [from MeSH]
