The endothelial cells of three cases of cerebellar capillary hemangioblastoma were studied by means of electron microscopy. Crystalloid bodies, not previously described in the vessels of the central nervous system (CNS), were found in 5%-10% of the endothelial cells, more often in the capillaries with small irregular lumens. They were not observed in the pericytes or stromal cells. They were round to polygonal, 0.5-1.0 micron in size and composed of substructural units of parallel thick and… CONTINUE READING
