fibro-, fibr-, fiber- +

(Latin: fiber [an elongated, threadlike structure]; a combining form denoting a relationship to fibers)

adenofibroma
1. A tumor composed of connective tissue containing glandular structures.
2. A benign neoplasm composed of glandular and fibrous tissues, with a relatively large proportion of glands.
adenofibrosis
Fibroid change in a gland.
adipofibroma
A benign connective tissue tumor composed of adipose and fibrous tissue; also, libofibroma.
angiofibroblastoma
An angioma with firbroblastic tissue between the vascular structures.
angiofibrolipoma
A neoplasm composed of fibrocytes, capillaries, and adipose tissue. Also called angiolipofibroma.
angiofibroma
A lesion characterized by fibrous tissue and vascular proliferation; it often occurs as one or more small, flesh-colored papules, particularly on the face.
angiofibrosis
Fibrosis (tissue or fibers laid down at a wound site) of the walls of blood vessels.
angiolipofibroma
A neoplasm composed of fibrocytes, capillaries, and adipose tissue. Also called angiolipofibroma.
angiomyofibroma
A markedly vascular leiomyoma, apparently arising from the smooth muscle of blood vessels.

Leiomyoma refers to benign uterine tumors also referred to as uterine fibroids. Uterine fibroids can cause pelvic pain and irregular vaginal bleeding in some females.

arteriofibrosis, arteriocapillary fibrosis
Arteriocapillary fibrosis or sclerosis (pathological hardening or thickening) of capillaries (smallest vessels which contain oxygenated blood) and arterioles (smallest divisions of the arteries).
coniofibrosis (s) (noun), coniofibroses (pl)
A lung ailment marked by an exuberant growth of connective tissue caused by a specific irritant, as in asbestosis (lung disease caused by inhalation of asbestos fibers), silicosis (lung disease caused by inhalation of the dust of silicates), and silicotuberculosis (silicosis, or pneumoconiosis caused by the prolonged breathing in of silica dust, complicated by pulmonary tuberculosis): Coniofibrosis consists of any of a group of lung diseases resulting from inhalation of particles of industrial substances, particularly inorganic dusts; such as, the dust of iron ore or coal, and permanent deposition of substantial amounts of such particles in the lungs.
continuous fibers
The primary spinning of man-made fibers or "endless fibers".
cryofibrinogen
An abnormal type of fibrinogen (protein present in blood plasma; converts to fibrin when blood clots) very rarely found in human plasma; it is precipitated upon cooling, but redissolves when warmed to room temperature.
cystic fibrosis, CF; mucoviscidosis; fibrocystic disease of the pancreas
One of the most common hazardous genetic (inherited) diseases, cystic fibrosis affects the exocrine glands and is characterized by the production of abnormal secretions, leading to abnormally viscous mucus build-up.

This accumulation of mucus can impair the pancreas and, secondarily, the intestine. Mucous build-up in lungs tends progressively to impair respiration.

Without treatment, CF results in death for 95% of affected children before the age of five.

defibrillate (verb), defibrillates; defibrillated; defibrillating
To arrest the muscular twitching involving individual muscle fibers of the heart that move without normal coordination: Defibrillating is performed by applying electric shocks across a person's chest which depolarizes the heart cells and allows normal rhythms to return.
