Abstract

The neutrophils of the cardiac blood obtained from 6 clinically healthy adult cats were observed by the use of electron microscopy. The fine structures of them were basically similar to those of the human and other animals. However, the following interesting findings were obtained. 1) The specific granules of the cells were classified into 3 types such as the homogeneously compact ones with high electron density, less dense ones with granular matrix and light or almost empty ones. 2) As the internal structure of the specific granules, so-called middle plates were observed in some of the granules with high electron density.
