    About the photograph:







    “Love Under the Microscope” by Dalila Villalobos







    As

    pathologists in training, we are constantly reminded that both human

    cellular responses and the most deadly medical conditions can be

    unexpectedly beautiful

    under the microscope. We are trained to be detail oriented and to

    understand disease in all its forms because abnormalities will only

    present to the eye that knows what to look for. This photo captures a

    normal prostatic gland with its characteristic double

    layer and irregular branching. The moment we diagnose a benign

    condition in a patient that is anxiously awaiting results is always

    rewarding. But, if, on top of that, we see heart-shape glands, it is

    inspiration.
