Summary

Description
English: Intermediate magnification micrograph of cystic medial degeneration, abbreviated CMD. It is also known as cystic medial necrosis. Aortic repair. Movat stain.

In pathology, there is no truth in names; cystic medial necrosis may lack necrosis and not be cystic.

The characteristic features are:

  • Basophilic ground substance in the media (seen on Movat's stain).
  • Disruption of the elastic lamina (seen with an elastic stain).
  • +/-Focal necrosis.
