Vein Histology

The vein endothelium is an example of a simple squamous epithelium. (Stain - Haematoxylin Eosin)


  • single layer of flattened, scale-like or plate-like cells.
  • large body cavities and heart, blood vessels and lymph vessels are typically lined by a simple squamous epithelium.
  • nuclei of the epithelial cells are often flattened or ovoid, and they are located close to the centre of the cells.


Note the entire cardiovascular system is lined by this type of epithelium.
