Caption: Liver cirrhosis. Polarised light micrograph of a section through liver tissue showing cirrhosis. The liver is an organ that metabolises chemicals, storing some and excreting others. Cirrhosis is a condition in which the liver responds to injury or death of cells by producing interlacing strands (septa, pale fibres) of fibrous scar tissue between the active liver lobules (black). It is often caused by excessive consumption of alcohol damaging the liver. Sirius red stain. Magnification: x11 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
