The reticular fibers of the capillary sheath and splenic cord were studied in the pig spleen by transmission electron microscopy to reveal their components and the presence of sialic acid in the amorphous ground substance. Collagen fibrils, elastic fibers, microfibrils, nerve fibers and smooth muscle cells were observed in the reticular fibers of the splenic cord, while only microfibrils were recognized in the reticular fibers of the capillary sheath. The binding of LFA lectin to the splenic cord was stronger than the capillary sheath. These findings may suggest that the reticular fibers of the splenic cord include numerous functional elements and perform an important role during contraction or dilation of the spleen. On the other hand, it seems to be reasonable to term the capillary sheath as "capillary basement membranous reticular tissue", since the reticular fiber of the capillary sheath resembles the basement membrane of the capillary in its components.
