This brief medical animation by Adriana Lippy describes the pathological process of acute inflammation at a cellular level. Key steps depicted include vasodilation, leukocyte margination, endothelial contraction, leukocyte rolling, diapedesis, chemotaxis, and phagocytosis.

The animation was made for the University of Dundee School of Medicine and is shown to first-year medical and dental students as part of the pathology curriculum.
