Caption: Pericarditis. Light micrograph of a section through the heart and its pericardium in a case of pericarditis. This condition is where the sac around the heart (the pericardium, across top) becomes inflamed, causing accumulation of pericardial fluid or blood (white and red) between the pericardium and the heart (muscle tissue, red, bottom). If not treated the heart is compressed by the fluid and this can be fatal. Magnification: x2.5 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
