jesusisking  Thank you! +1  
focus  Ugh I was thrown off by "disruption of vascular basement membranes" since it seemed similar to the correct answer but I can see how "separation" would be a normal, expected response of the body that is needed vs. "disruption" would be traumatic and abnormal... please correct me if I am wrong! +2  
blah  @focus reasoning sounds right. I nearly picked that but the other choice sounded better. Just semantics. +4  
aakb  um just to clarify I don't think the differentiating factor is the wording of separation vs disruption. but rather that the correct answer is separation of ENDOTHELIAL junctions meaning that the spaces between the endothelial cells get wider. vs the answer youre thinking of says the disruption of the vascular BASEMENT MEMBRANE (which is under the endothelial cells) gets disrupted. so meaning something literally broken through the blood vessel and made a cut in the layer beneath the endothelial cells that line the blood vessel Dr. Sattar from pathoma usually draws a basement membrane and a layer of endothelial cells sitting on top +4
