Caption

Lung lesion. Coloured frontal chest X-ray of a woman with Wegener's granulomatosis, showing cavitating (cavity forming) lesions (orange) in the lungs. Wegener's granulomatosis is a form of vasculitis (inflammation of blood vessel walls) that affects the lungs and other organs. Due to its end-organ damage, it can be a serious disease that requires long-term immune suppression as treatment. In this case the disease has formed rounded masses in the lungs, which necrotise (die unnaturally) internally. This shows on the X-ray as fluid levels on the inside of the lesions.
