Pus is an exudate, a protein rich fluid that includes dead white blood cells (wbc) and bacteria and or parasites. It can range in color from yellow, white, brown, to green. The color depends on the bacteria causing the infection or substances made by the wbc to kill the bacteria. A collection of pus in an enclosed space of the body is called an abscess.
