47. ThymusThe thymus is a highly lobulated organinvested by a loose collagenous capsule, C,from which short interlobular septa, S, containingblood vessels radiate into thesubstance of the organ.The thymic tissue is divided into two distinctzones, a deeply basophilic outer cortex,Cx, and an inner eosinophilic medulla,M; distinction between the two zones is mostmarked in earlychildhood as is represented in this specimen. - is usually most active in teenagers and shrinks in adulthood. The process of thymus transformation during aging is called involution. - Cortex (outer regions) and medulla (inner regions) are distinguished in parenchym. - Parenchym is composed of cytoreticulum (stelate epithelial cells forming network) and T-lymphocytes. Cytoreticulum originates from endoderm of pharyngeal pouches and cytokeratin (protein typical for epithelial cells) can be detected in the cytoplasm of its cells. - Thymus is composed of 2 lobes covered with capsule (dense irregular connective tissue), septa running from capsule into parenchym separate it into lobules. Lobules contains only cortex.Cortex: cytoreticulum ( ) + lymphocytes (95%), blood capillaries with thick wall covered withcytoplasmic processes of cytoreticulum cells =„thymus-blood barrier“Medulla: cytoreticulum + small amount oflymphocytes (5 %), Hassal´s corpuscles ( )–arrise by aggregation of cytoreticulum cells, whichdegenerate in the center of body ( ).Young thymus:The cortex, Cx, is packed with lymphocytes,accounting for its basophilia, whereas the medulla,M, contains fewer lymphocytes.

48. Arteries and veinsThe wall of arteries and veins of large or mediumcaliber have three tunics: tunica intima (interna),tunica media, and tunica adventitia (externa). General structure of tunics - tunica intima – the endothelial lining with its basal lamina and subendothelial layer with longitudinally oriented elastic fibers - tunica media – in artery more then in veins: spiraly and circularly oriented connective tissue fibers organized into elastic fenestrated membranes and smooth muscle cells, the ratio of smooth muscle cells and elastic membranes depends on the type of blood artery - tunica adventitia – contains collagen and elastic fibers, scattered fibroblasts. – in vein more then in arteries: longitudinally oriented bundles of smooth muscle cells, serrounded with connective tissueThe tunica adventitia contains small blood vessels(vasa vasorum), which supply nutrients to tissuesin the outer one-half of the wall of the bloodvessel. Small nerves (nervi vasorum), representingfibers of the autonomic nervous system, are alsopresent in the tunica adventitia and they innervatethe smooth muscle of the vessel. Elastic laminae –inner and outer – separate tunics in the vesselwall. These laminae (membrana elastica interna etexterna) are made up of elastic fibers. Innermembrane separates intima from media and outerone separate media from adentitia. Outermembrane is not usually distinct in all veins andsmall arteries.
49. AortaLarge arteries = Elastic arteries (examples: aortaand and pulmonary arteries, the immediatebranches of these arteries are also considered tobe elastic arteries – brachiocephalic, commoncarotids, etc.). have sheets of elastic tissue in theirwalls and are the largest diameter arteries. Theyare subjected to high systolic pressures. Theselarge vessels are also adapted to smooth out thesurges in blood flow since blood only flowsthrough them during systole. The elastic tissue intheir tunic media provides the resilience to smoothout this pressure wave.The tunica intima is relatively thick and consists ofan endothelial layer with its basal lamina, asubendothelial layer of connective tissue and aninternal elastic membrane. The internal elasticmembrane is not as conspicuous because it is oneof the many elastic membranes in the wall of thearteries. It is usually only identified because it isthe innermost of the elastic layers of the arterialwall.The tunica media is the thickest of the threelayers. The numerous, thick, fenestrated elasticmembranes are the predominant substance of themedia. They are interconnected by fine elasticfibers and also by smooth muscle cells, whichspirals at a slight angle to the transverse axis of thevessel. The smooth muscle cells is surrounded byreticular fibers and a few collagenous fibers. In elastic arteries, the tunica adventitia isrelatively thin – half the thickness of the media –and contains collagen fibers, elastic fibers andconnective tissue cells (fibroblasts andmacrophages). The tunica adventitia containsblood vessels (vasa vasorum) and nerves (nervivasorum) that supply the blood vessel wall.
50. Large veins(examples: vena cava, subclavian veins)In large veins, the tunica media is relatively thinand consists of an endothelial lining with its basallamina, a small amount of subendothelial tissueand some smooth muscle cells. Thin tunica mediacontains sparse, circularly arranged smoothmuscle. Also present are collagen fibers and somefibroblasts. The most obvious feature is thethickness of the tunica adventitia. In large veins,large bundles of longitudinal disposed smoothmuscle cells are found with the usual collagen andelastic fibers.Vena cava (HE) tunicainterna is not distinct in this small magnificationSM = smooth muscle bundles of adventitiaTA = tunica adventitiaTM = tunica mediavv = vasa vasorum52.

PALS contains T-lymphocytes, in nodules and on the periphery of PALS B- lymphocytes and macrophages and dendritic cells are present. Periphery of PALS and nodules is called marginal zone and contains also many blood sinuses. - red pulp: is composed of reticular c.t. with different cell types around sinuses. Free cells are macrophages, lymphocytes,Red pulp granulocytes and mainly erythrocytes. Reticular c.t. with cells form cords of Billroth and these cords surrounds venous sinuses. 3. Blood circulation: A. lienalis entres the splenic hilus its branches pass through the trabecules as aa. trabeculares when they leave the trabecules, they are called aa. centrales and are followed by lymphatic tissue (PALS + boides of Malpighi) these arteries are branched at the end into arteriolae penicilatae: eache arteriole has 3 parts: 1. arteriole of pulp (medullary arteriole),White pulp 2. encapsulated arteriole (surrounded by
phagocyting reticular cells – capsule) and 3. precapillary which opens into venous sinuses in red pulp near the trabecules, blood from sinuses is collected into vv. trabeculares which fuse into v. lienalis.54.
