The secondary pulmonary lobule is represented by the hexagon; in the center are the bronchiole (green ring) and arteriole (red circle); in the periphery are pulmonary venules (short, fat arrow). To the right are cross-sections of a bronchus (arrowhead) and pulmonary artery (arrow). (B) Illustration of interstitial pulmonary edema.
