Serous inflammation is a form of inflammation where the predominant feature is the production of a serum-like exudate. The fluid may derive from increased capillary permeability, as may occur in the early stages of acute inflammation, or it may result from active secretion by cells lining body cavities.

It should be contrasted with fibrinous inflammation.
