Caption: Lung infection. Coloured chest X-ray of a patient with sickle cell disease (SCD), an inherited blood disorder. SCD has many symptoms including pulmonary complications. Here, the lower lobe of one lung has become fluid-filled (consolidated) due to an infection, resulting in a characteristic cloudy appearance of the lung spaces on the X-ray (yellow, right). The vertebrae (blue and white blocks) have been softened due to the overgrowth (hyperplasia) of bone marrow and the invertebral disks have pushed into them, causing the vertebrae to become biconcave in shape.
