In an inflammatory reaction three basic components are recognized: Injury to tissues, inflammatory mediators and tissue responses. Trauma causes tissue injury, this leads to the appearance of local inflammatory mediators which induce the tissue reactions, responsible in turn for the inflammatory symptoms.
