A MASSIVE brain aneurysm!
A brain (cerebral) aneurysm is a bulging, weak area in the wall of an artery that supplies blood to the brain. In most cases, a brain aneurysm causes no symptoms and goes unnoticed. In rare cases, the brain aneurysm ruptures, releasing blood into the skull and causing a stroke. When a brain aneurysm ruptures, the result is called a subarachnoid hemorrhage. Depending on the severity of the hemorrhage, brain damage or death may result. A person may inherit the tendency to form aneurysms, or aneurysms may develop because of hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis) and aging. Most brain aneurysms cause no symptoms and may only be discovered during tests for another, usually unrelated, condition. In other cases, an unruptured aneurysm will cause problems by pressing on areas in the brain.

The Infant Brain! At the time of birth, the brain of an infant is only 25 percent of the size of an adult brain. In the next 2 years of life, the brain will grow by 55%, reaching 80% of its adult size !
.
The early stages of development are strongly affected by genetic factors; for example, genes direct newly formed neurons to their correct locations in the brain and play a role in how they interact. However, although they arrange the basic wiring of the brain, genes do not design the brain completely. Instead, genes allow the brain to fine-tune itself according to the input it receives from the environment. A child’s senses report to the brain about her environment and experiences, and this input stimulates neural activity. Speech sounds, for example, stimulate activity in language-related brain regions. If the amount of input increases (if more speech is heard) synapses between neurons in that area will be activated more often. Repeated use strengthens a synapse. Synapses that are rarely used remain weak and are more likely to be eliminated in the pruning process. Synapse strength contributes to the connectivity and efficiency of the networks that support learning, memory, and other cognitive abilities. At birth, the number of synapses per neuron is 2,500, but by age two or three, it's about 15,000 per neuron!

A beautiful heart, preserved with plasticizer! Plastination allows scientists to produce specimens that demonstrate even the smallest vessels with great precision. These specimens do not deteriorate over time and are not harmful to health when handling.
.
Developed by Dr. Gunther von Hagens in 1977, plastination replaces the water and fat with certain plastics. The water and soluble fats are dissolved from the body by placing it into a solvent bath. The specimen is then immersed in a polymer solution and placed in a vacuum chamber. The vacuum removes the acetone from the specimen and helps the polymer to penetrate every last cell.

This process leaves us with an incredibly real coronary vasculature. We can see the left anterior descending artery, the right coronary artery, the circumflex artery, and more! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Pulsating Artery! This 3 year-old male patient injured himself with a cup of glass, damaging his entire hand. Exploration was done revealing ulnar nerve nerve damage, artery damage, and damage to the flexor digitorum superficialis of the little finger. The ulnar artery is seen pulsating just before the repair and reconstruction of all of the damaged tissues, which occurred during a 5 hour operation.

Gallbladder full of stones! These stones are hardened deposits of a digestive fluid that can form in the gallbladder, which can eventually block the exiting bile ducts and cause sudden, severe abdominal pain, known as biliary colic. They range in size from as small as a grain of sand to as large as a gold ball.  Gallstones are very frequently found during a cholecystectomy (surgical resection of the gallbladder) and there can be HUNDREDS of them in some instances.

If you're stressed, take this weekend to RELAX... Stress really can be a silent killer if not properly controlled. Of course everyone is stressed (especially medical students) but learning ways to maintain it will help in the long run. Our body is like a pharmacy, relapsing and inhibiting certain chemicals causing different actions in our body.
.
According to @barrowneuro,
Stress symptoms can affect your body, thoughts feelings, and behavior. Being able to manage them can decrease the rate of high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and diabetes.
.
When the body is stressed, the hypothalamus signals the autonomic nervous system and the pituitary gland and the process is started to produce epinephrine and cortisol, sometimes called the "stress hormones.”The adrenal cortex also released cortisol from the stress signals of the hypothalamus. An increase of cortisol in the body can lead to hypercortisolism such as Cushing’s Syndrome.
The brain scans show over time, cortisol  blocks the secretion of corticotripin-releasing hormone, preventing the HPA axis interactions central to glucocorticoid secretion. Chronic levels of high stress disrupt the delicate feedback balance, resulting in the failure of feedback inhibition to operate and the continued release of cortisol.

The blood supply of the face! Blood is supplied to the brain, face, and scalp via two major sets of vessels: the right and left common carotid arteries and the right and left vertebral arteries. The common carotid arteries have two divisions. The external carotid arteries supply the face and scalp with blood. So, each of the small capillaries you see here are supplied by the external carotid artery!
.
You shouldn’t be able to see the small vessels, and if you can, they may be "broken.” Small broken blood vessels on your face can leave your face with a red, blotchy appearance. While the broken blood vessels or capillaries don’t pose any health risks, they are unsightly and can affect your self-confidence. For some people, the appearance of burst capillaries on their face is a hereditary condition. However, there are a number of other reasons for broken blood vessels on your face.
.
Some of these are extreme weather conditions, exposure to UV rays, rosacea, or drinking too much alcohol. Sometimes, even sneezing or vomiting can cause the capillaries in your face to pop.
.
The appearance of tiny red veins under the skin of your face happens when the veins become enlarged (called telangiectasia) and dilated. If you have this appearance on your face, don’t worry - they usually resolve on their own.

Does this precious little smile resemble someone who just came out of a long open heart surgery? Brought to us by @medicalpedia, this poor little girl was born with a congenital heart defect called hypoplastic left heart syndrome. The left side of her heart was critically underdeveloped, which affects the normal blood flow so less oxygen-rich blood is pumped to the body. After a long open heart surgery to correct the defect, this little warrior is on the road to recovery.

Watch this baby escape the amniotic sac... with the help of the doctors! The amniotic sac is an opaque bubble that covers all babies in the womb from right after conception. As the baby grows, the sac fills with fluid, called amniotic fluid. The sac cushions the baby from bumps, protect the fetus from damage, and allows the fetus to move freely. It is rare for a baby to be born with the sac still completely intact, as most sacs split open during labour on their own, releasing the protective fluid. This is what people mean when they refer to a woman’s water breaking. In some situations like the one presented above, if rupture of the membrane doesn’t take place and the fetus is born within an intact sac, the sac is broken by a doctor either when a woman is ready to give birth, or right after delivery.

Bi-lobed placenta! This is a variation in the normal shape of a placenta, and refers to a placenta separated into two equal halves. The condition is not associated with an increased risk of fetal anomalies, though there is an increased risk of vaginal bleeding during and after pregnancy. A routine abdominal ultrasound scan during pregnancy can help establish the presence of a Bilobed Placenta. With proper ante-natal care and appropriate management during delivery, the associated prognosis is excellent. Thanks to @goldievickers for sharing this interesting case. .

A star - shaped cataract! A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s natural lens, which is found directly behind the iris and the pupil. Cataracts are the most common cause of vision loss in people over age 40 and is the principal cause of blindness in the world. In fact, there are more cases of cataracts worldwide than there are of glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy combined, according to Prevent Blindness America (PBA). This cataract just happened to form the shape of a star! Tag your science-loving friends!

A very rare medical case - an ectopic pregnancy where the fetus is still alive. An ectopic pregnancy occurs when an embryo implants somewhere other than the uterus, such as one of the fallopian tubes. Implantation can also occur on the cervix, ovaries, or within the abdomen. The baby probably can’t survive though in extremely rare cases he or she might. One cause of ectopic pregnancy is a damaged fallopian tube that doesn’t let a fertilized egg into the uterus, so it implants in the fallopian tube or somewhere else. Other risk factors include pelvic inflammatory disease, tobacco use, and the use of assisted reproductive technology. Detection of ectopic pregnancy is typically done with blood tests (human chorionic gonadotropin) and ultrasound.
