Spotlight on Cystitis

Alex Baker creates a cover illustration for Contemporary OB/GYN highlighting the causes of pelvic pain.

This piece is on Internal Cystitis and Bladder Pain Syndrome, which is a common cause of chronic pelvic pain. Alex's clear artwork shows glomerulations - the thinned and/or irregular areas of the glycosaminoglycan (GAG) layer with general irritation in the urothelium during a cystoscopy (an exam of the urethra and bladder with a camera).
