Using the thiocholine method of Koelle and Friedenwald, and histological techniques the pterygopalatine ganglion of the western hedgehog Erinaceus europaeus fron the Wroclaw Province was studied. The ganglion was found to be a dense, elongated aggregation of neurocytes, 3-4 mm long and 0.5-1.0 mm broad. The ganglion is very tightly attached to the pterygopalatine nerve by connective tissue.
