Some aspects of normal obliteration of sutures in rabbit and man were studied histologically and it was found that suture closure took place by intramembranous ossification in specific areas of trans-suturally arranged, tendon-like tissue. Histochemically these areas demonstrated high activity of oxidative enzymes.
