Caption

Jaundice. A patient suffering from jaundice. Yellowing of the white (sclera) of the eye & of the surrounding facial skin can be seen. In this case the jaundice has been caused by malaria. The infective protozoal organisms invade the blood- stream and multiply inside red blood cells. These cells rupture, and bilirubin, a yellow blood breakdown product, accumulates in the blood and tissues. Jaundice is also the chief sign of many disorders of the liver and gall-bladder. These disorders may be caused by viral infection (such as hepatitis A), liver cancer, gallstones, liver damage due to cirrhosis. Treatment depends on the underlying disease. Photographed in Vietnam.
