Art of pulmonary tuberculosis with lung cavities

Pulmonary tuberculosis. Illustration of a human lung diseased with pulmonary tuberculosis. At centre right is the affected lung seen sectioned through; at left is the heart with its associated blood vessels. In pulmonary tuberculosis the air sac alveoli of the lung become filled with an inflammatory exudate (yellow). The exudate is made of macrophages (white blood cells) and bacteria which cause the infection Mycobacterium tubercu- losis. The walls of alveoli have disintegrated in places, forming cavities (upper centre). Lesions or tubercles of infection are visible (white). Tuberculosis is an infectious lung disease which, although still a killer, can now be cured

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from Science Photo Library showcases the art of pulmonary tuberculosis, a devastating lung disease. The illustration depicts a human lung affected by this condition, with intricate details that shed light on its destructive nature. At the center right of the image, we see a sectioned view of the diseased lung. The air sac alveoli, responsible for oxygen exchange, are filled with an inflammatory exudate presented in yellow hues. This exudate consists of macrophages (white blood cells) and bacteria known as Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which cause the infection. The walls of the alveoli have disintegrated in certain areas, resulting in cavities visible at the upper center. These cavities serve as evidence of severe damage caused by pulmonary tuberculosis. Additionally, white lesions or tubercles can be observed throughout the infected lung. Although still a formidable killer today, it is important to note that tuberculosis can now be cured thanks to advancements in medicine and healthcare practices. This artwork serves as a reminder of both our progress and ongoing battle against infectious diseases like pulmonary tuberculosis. Science Photo Library has captured this visually striking representation with precision and expertise. It stands as a testament to their commitment to providing high-quality visual resources for educational purposes within the medical field.
