By Stormonth, James, Phelp, P. H.
The passage or effusion of a fluid into the areolae of any texture, and particularly of the areolar membrane. The fluid effused is ordinarily the Liquor sanguinis, sound or altered- sometimes blood or pus, faeces, or urine. When infiltration of a serous fluid is general, it constitutes anasarca; when local, oedema.
By Robley Dunglison
By Willam Alexander Newman Dorland
A process or condition by virtue of which fluid or solid foreign substances are deposited in and diffused through a tissue, organ, or cell, as the infiltration of a tissue or organ with red or white blood corpuscles or of a cell by fatty particles. Strictly speaking, infiltration should be clearly separated from degeneration, as in the latter condition the foreign substances are from changes within the cell, but practical usage often makes the terms synonymous.
