Historic Embryology
Marcello Malpighi
Spleen white pulp
The Malpighian bodies or Malpighian bodies of the spleen is the historic name for spleen white pulp or splenic lymphoid nodules. Named after Marcello Malpighi (1628 – 1694) an Italian biologist and physician. A spleen lymphoid region, organized as lymphoid sheaths with both T-cell and B-cell compartments, around the branching arterial vessels (resembles lymph node structure).

The term should not be confused with the renal structure, a Malpighian corpuscle (renal corpuscle).
