Abstract:

The newly formed blood capillaries of turpentine granuloma of the rat show both thin-walled segments and especially thick capillary endothelium, which contains relatively few small vesicles the formation of gaps in the endothelium and a locally weakly developed basement membrane may favor the exchange function. The heavy development of the ergastoplasm and of Palades granules points to an intensive albumin synthesis, which serves the needs of capillary growth and perhaps other requirements of the granulation tissue. Side by side with edematous swellings of the cells, inspissations of the basic plasma occur. The adventitial cell sheath is powerfully developed. The oil of turpentine obviously injures not only the original but also the newly formed blood capillaries.
