Inflammation is the initial response of the host to a diverse array of biological stressors including bacterial infection, burns, trauma, and invasive surgery. Most inflammatory reactions begin as a suppurative or purulent exudation process when the first line of cellular defense, the neutrophils, accumulate in the area which may lead to the formation of microabscesses. This article on microabscess is an effort in providing information available about microabscess from various sources. The matter has been extracted from internet sources with the help of Google search, dictionaries, and articles from the online journals, and textbooks. In this paper, we have discussed the mechanism behind the formation, regression of microabscess and the different types of microabscesses that have appeared in the literature related to different disease processes.
