Neonatal Sepsis

This baby died of an overwhelming bacterial infection shortly after birth. The opened chest shows the heart, in the center, covered here with the yellowish pericardial and mediastinal tissues. On each side are the red lungs. Below, in the abdominal cavity, you can see the liver.

The white nodules in the liver are abscesses, pockets of pus. At the lower portion of the picture are the intestines.
