Cartilaginous Tissue. Fibrous Cartilage or Fibrocartilage
Fibrous cartilage occurs only in a few sites in the organism; certain parts of the intervertebral discs (Fig. A), symphysis pubica, and some articular cartilages are composed of this tissue. Hyaline cartilage is usually found at its periphery, and there is a gradual transition between the two.
