ABSTRACT
Chromaffin-reacting cells were stained by the modified Sevki method in digital skin of 7 patients with various peripheral vascular disorders, and 15 control patients without vascular or skin diseases. Then- was a wide range of variation as to numbers of these cells, and no significant difference could be detected in the histologic features of the chromaffin-reacting cells in the digital skin from the control group, and from the patients with peripheral vascular diseases. No differences were observed in the appearance or the number of chromaffin positive granules in these cells. The chromaffin granules of digital skin may be the source of humoral agents affecting the circulation in the extremities, but elucidation of their role will be facilitated by more quantitative histochemical methods.
