Lung Reticular Fibres

  • Reticular and elastic fibres form the bulk of the connective tissue present in the walls of the alveoli.
  • Collagenous fibres are sparse and fine in the alveolar walls.
    • Note also that the tissue stained for reticular fibres looks much denser than the other sections. This lung collapsed prior to fixation because of the recoil of the elastic fibres.
