We studied morphological changes in hyaline cartilages of different localization in adult male rabbits with focal persistent infection produced by Staphylococcus aureus strain 209. Local chronic inflammation produced systemic atrophic and degenerative changes in the cartilage tissue. The severity of pathological changes depended on genetically determined repair and metabolic activity of the cartilage tissue.
