[L. exsudare, to sweat out] Any fluid released from the body with a high concentration of protein, cells, or solid debris. Exudates are classified as fibrinous, hemorrhagic, diphtheritic, purulent, or serous. A fibrinous exudate may wall off a cavity, resulting in adhesions after surgery or in restrictive lung disease after an empyema.
