Résumé

L'étude histochimique de la nature des mucopolysaccharides de la substance interstitielle du cylindrome mammaire permet de leur attribuer une origine épithéliale. La cellule myoépithéliale, qui est ectodermique, joue un rôle essentiel dans leur sécrétion. La comparaison avec la fonction sécrétoire des cellules myoépithéliales dans le sein normal et dysplasique, objectivée par l'imprégnation argentique, laisse entrevoir l'histogenèse possible du cylindrome.

Cylindroma of the breast

A histochemical and histogenetic study

Summary

The histochemical study of mucopolysaccharide components of the ground substance of the cylindroma lends force to their epithelial origine. The myoepithelial cell, which is ectodermal in origin, plays an essential role in their secretion. Silver impregnation of normal and dysplastic breast illustrates the secretory function of myoepithelial cells and their possible implication in the histogenesis of cylindroma.
