Descriptor English: Immune Complex Diseases
Descriptor Spanish: Enfermedades del Complejo Inmune
Descriptor enfermedades por complejos inmunes
Entry term(s) hipersensibilidad tipo III
Scope note: Grupo de enfermedades caracterizadas por el deposito de grandes complejos solubles de antígenos y anticuerpos que producen daño tisular. Además de la ENFERMEDAD DEL SUERO y de la REACCIÓN DE ARTHUS, en muchas otras enfermedades inmunológicas sistémicas las evidencias apoyan un papel patogénico para los complejos inmunes entre las que se incluyen la GLOMERULONEFRITIS, el lupus eritematoso sistémico (LUPUS ERITEMATOSO SISTÉMICO) y la POLIARTERITIS NODOSA.

Scope note: Group of diseases mediated by the deposition of large soluble complexes of antigen and antibody with resultant damage to tissue. Besides SERUM SICKNESS and the ARTHUS REACTION, evidence supports a pathogenic role for immune complexes in many other IMMUNE SYSTEM DISEASES including GLOMERULONEPHRITIS, systemic lupus erythematosus (LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS, SYSTEMIC) and POLYARTERITIS NODOSA.
