Abstract

There is considerable controversy on what actually constitutes the ‘early lesion’, on whether all lesions begin in the same way and whether all develop into fibro-fatty plaques. This introduction outlines the morphology and histochemistry of lesions regarded as ‘early’ in terms of chronology and the general pathology of atherosclerosis (Movat et al., 1959; Haust, 1971a; Geer and Haust, 1972).
