Caption: Gliomatosis peritonei. Light micrograph of a section through a mass of glial cells (nervous system support cells, purple) in peritoneal tissue (the membrane that lines the abdominal cavity). This disorder, which is a complication of an ovarian teratoma, is known as gliomatosis peritonei. Ovarian teratomas are benign (non-cancerous) tumours that arise from the germ (sex) cells. Because germ cells develop into all the cells of the body, the tumour can contain a variety of different tissues, including bone, tooth and hair. Magnification: x150 when printed at 10 centimetres wide. Human tissue.
