Abstract

The innervation of lymph vessels in guinea pig mes­entery was studied by light and electron microscope using histochemical techniques. The cholinergic fibers run prevalently longitudinal in the perivascular connective tissue, only brief segments show a loose network. The lymph vessels wall, compared with that of blood vessels, shows few adrenergic nerve fibers located in the adventitia outside the smooth muscle cells. The possible role of the nervous system in the Motor control of the lymph vessels is discussed.
