medical illustration of Lymph nodes (lymph glands) are small oval structures scattered all over the body. Lymph nodes contain lymph cells, called lymphocytes. Lymphocytes grow and mature inside a lymph node, and they represent one of many types of white blood cell (WBC) that helps the body fight against infections.
medical illustration of The tapeworm is among the oldest known parasites in the world. They vary in size, from 6 inches to 26 feet long depending on the type of tapeworm infection. Described as flat and ribbon-like, tapeworms have three parts to their bodies: head, neck and body segments called proglottids.
medical illustration of White blood cells (WBCs), also called leukocytes, are the front lines of defense when it comes to our bodies fighting off germs or infection. The immune system snaps into response mode by sending white blood cells to fight off the foreign infection—by either producing protective antibodies or by killing  bacteria.
medical illustration of A CGI, representation of back pain. Back pain is one of the leading reasons why workers need to take sick leave. Muscle strains are the most common cause of low back pain. A ruptured intervertebral disc, also called a herniated disc, is another common cause of back pain. Spinal stenosis  also causes back pain in the aging population.

medical illustration of Dupuytren's contracture is an abnormal thickening and tightening of the normally elastic tissue beneath the skin of the palm and fingers. This tissue is called fascia. The fascia contains strands of fibers, like cords, that run from the palm upward into the fingers. In Dupuytren's contracture, these cords tighten, or contract, causing the fingers to curl forward. In severe cases, it can lead to crippling hand deformities.
medical illustration of Alcohol interferes with the brain’s communication pathways, and can affect the way the brain looks and works. Heavy drinking takes a toll on the liver, and can lead to a variety of problems and liver inflammations including:
