The Parenchyma Accompanying Major Extraglandular Ducts within the Rat Lacrimal Cord
While investigating regional differences in the duct-containing cord joining the rat exorbital lacrimal gland and conjunctiva (Fig. 1A), it was noted that some specimens also contained small masses of parenchyma (Fig. 1B). This study is concerned with the distribution and histological appearance of this cordal lacrimal tissue.
