Abstract

A microscopic, three-dimensional study of the aortico-pulmonary glomus tissue in the adult cat indicates a random, continuous aggregation of glomus tissue extending from the left coronary artery to the ligamentum arteriosum. It was not possible to demonstrate unequivocally specific glomera. Serial section and the injection of the pulmonary artery with India ink failed to show a vessel of supply to glomeric tissue.
