Endocrine cells and melanin-containing cells in the anal canal epithelium

Abstract

The epithelium of the anal canal from 22 humans was studied in order to demonstrate the possible presence of endocrine cells and melanin-containing cells. Histochemical methods aimed at demonstrating reducing substances, biogenic amines, argyrophilia and melanin, were used.
