Caption: Heart growth, light micrograph. Section through a vegetation (lump, deep pink, top) on the endocardium of one of the mitral valves. The endocardium is the tissue that lines the inner heart and forms the valves, including the mitral valves. This growth is the result of a bacterial infection. The bacteria are seen as the grainy purple regions inside the growth. Normal valve tissue is seen at lower centre (paler pink).
