The hypothesis is presented that the diapedesis of erythrocytes is generally developed as a later stage of the same processes which produce adherence of the red cell to the vascular endothelium. The hypothesis is based on intravital and electron microscopical observations on the microcirculation in skin chambers in man and hamster cheek pouches. These observations are discussed against the background of existing information about the circulatory system, extravascular fluid movement and rheology of blood.
