Abstract

According to our studies on FGP cells (Mato and Ookawara 1981; Mato et al. 1986), they are localized in the perivascular space (Virchow-Robin space) of small cerebral blood vessels and originate from pial cells about one week after birth. The cells contain many round inclusion bodies with hydrolytic enzymes and are potent in their uptake capacity of endo- and exogenous materials. Recently, Sturrock (1987) and Jeynes (1985) discussed a possible biological role of FGP cells. In the present investigation, we focus our attention on the morphological changes of FGP cells in cerebral edema.
