    That's not a diagnosis. What's wrong with the parenchyma?
    From Dorland's Medical Dictionary: parenchyma (pm-rengckf-mm) [Gr. “anything poured in beside”] the essential elements of an organ; in anatomical nomenclature this refers to its functional elements as distinguished from its framework, the stroma.
