Celestial corpora amylacea

| July 8, 2009

 Several years ago I wrote up a "Nebulous Corpora Amylacea" I came across in a prostate biopsy.


Corpora amylacea are simply laminated luminal secretions that are commonly present in prostatic glands and increase in prevalence with advancing age. They are present in 25% of men as early as the third to fifth decades of life and are thought to be related to epithelial cell desquamation and degeneration. 

Shortly after the image appeared in print someone sent along another celestial corpora amylacea with resemblance to the planet Saturn I re-discovered buried in my image files.
