Serous Fluid

 

a clear protein fluid excreted by serous membranes, which line the internal cavities of man and animals. Serous fluid is formed through ultrafiltration from circulatory vessels. It contains protein and a small amount of various cellular elements, including leukocytes and detached mesothe-lial cells. The accumulation of serous fluid accompanying disorders of blood and lymph circulation is called transudate.
