|Title||Unpublished paper, 'On traumatic inflammation of connective tissue' by G [George] Thin|
|Creator||Thin; George (1839-1903); British dermatopathologist|
|Description||Thin, referring to observations recorded in his previous papers (see AP/57/5), distinguishes in the cornea primary bundles of fibrillary tissue, which are covered by elongated flat cells, layers of quadrangular flat cells (which are analogous in appearance and relative position to the layers of cells described by him as investing the secondary and tertiary bundles of tendon), and the stellate cells. To these he now adds a description of parallel chains of spindle cells, each cell having two processes, one at each end of the spindle, by which it is joined to its fellows on either side. These cells are coextensive with the cornea-substance, and are present in every interspace of the primary bundles, and, consequently, layers in different planes cross each other at an angle. |
