The present study reveals intraepithelial capillaries in the olfactory neuroepithelium of human fetuses aged between 12 and 24 weeks of gestation, which disappear at birth. The area occupied by the intraepithelial capillaries increases significantly with fetal age (0.047 +/- 0.014 microm(2)/microm(2) at 12 weeks and 0.101 +/- 0. 025 microm(2)/microm(2) at 24 weeks) and with the thickness of the epithelium (45.00 +/- 6.74 microm at 8 weeks and 64.10 +/- 8.51 microm at 24 weeks).
