Gliosis is a nonspecific reactive change of glial cells in response to damage to the central nervous system CNS. In most cases, gliosis involves the proliferation or hypertrophy of several different types of glial cells, including astrocytes , microglia , and oligodendrocytes. In its most extreme form, the proliferation associated with gliosis leads to the formation of a glial scar. The process of gliosis involves a series of cellular and molecular events that occur over several days. This process, which constitutes a form of gliosis known as microgliosis, begins within hours of the initial CNS injury.
