Morphologische Veränderungen an Muskeln und Sehnen bei generalisierter Tendomyopathie

Conference paper

Summary

In fibromyalgia changes occur in the skeletal muscles, as well as in the tendinous and capsular tissue, without any inflammatory trace. Whereas nervous irritations induced by different stimuli lead to local contractions with successive hypoxy in the skeletal muscles, a proliferation of the local fibroblasts and destruction of collagens take place in the tendinous tissue. Both processes induce pain.

The same phenomenon, destruction of collagen and cell proliferation, was found in cases of a carpal-canal syndrome not induced by an inflammatory process.

Among specimens analyzed by the German Center for Rheumapathology were a few in which the process typical of carpal-canal syndrome could also be seen in specimens from patients with fibromyalgia. We cannot draw any conclusion as to the numerical correlation.
