Intestinal ischaemia. Light micrograph of a section through the large intestine in a case of ischaemia (restricted blood supply). When blood supply is compromised to the intestine, the local tissue will degenerate with disruption of the intestinal glands. In addition to accumulation of blood within the vessels, leukocytes are attracted to the sites of tissue damage. Common outcomes are necrosis, tissue haemorrhage (bleeding) and oedema (fluid retention). Magnification: x57 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
