Age-related changes in the rat lacrimal gland: Impressive morphology and enigmatic nature

Abstract

The rat lacrimal apparatus includes several glands; among them, the exorbital lacrimal gland plays the central role. Its parenchyma and stroma undergo prominent morphologic changes with age. The parenchymal transformation includes metaplasia of some of its acini and their turning into Harderian gland-like structures (harderization), accumulation of gland… (More)
