Caption: Cystic fibrosis, light micrograph (LM) of a perforated bowel in a newborn baby with cystic fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis is a genetic condition in which the lungs and digestive system become clogged with thick sticky mucus. Intestinal blockage is especially common in newborns with cystic fibrosis. A distended, or swollen, abdomen is the result of severe constipation and can lead to perforation. In newborn infants, not passing their first bowel movement within 24 to 48 hours of birth is characteristic of cystic fibrosis. Red mucous is seen in the lumen of the bowel in this image. Magnification: x 150 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
