The literature on macrophages in the muscularis externa of mouse, rat, guinea pig, cat, dog and human gut is reviewed. In smaller mammals macrophages are regularly situated in two locations: in the serosa and at the level of Auerbach's plexus between the longitudinal and circular muscle layers. In addition a few solitary cells are present at the level of the deep muscular plexus. At the level of Auerbach's plexus the macrophages occur as a constant and regularly distributed cell population with… CONTINUE READING
