Abstract

The splenic white pulp diameter, the lymphoid follicles diameter, the splenic capsule thickness, and the splenic trabeculae thickness were determined on fifteen healthy Iraqi camel (Camelus dromedarius). The average measurements were 592.35±5.23 µm, 279.19±4.85µm,147.43±3.64 µm and 106.5±6.29µm, respectively. In addition, a wide marginal zone surrounded the white pulp and contained sheathed arteries was found. Also, the cross section of the periarterial lymphatic sheath (PALS) containing 3-4 arteries.

Keywords: s: Camel spleen, histometric study, white pulp, lymphoid follicles, capsule and trabeculae.
