Abstract

According to Duke-Elder (1961), the keratocytes were described for the first time by Toynbee in 1841. Later, in 1910, Virchow called them ‘corneal corpuscles’. They are practically inactive cells, which nevertheless possess all the genetic potential needed to become active in case of necessity.
