In order to study the morphological basis of the increased permeability of the capillaries of the iris in neuroparalytic keratitis the ophthalmic division of the trigeminal nerve in the cat was denervated using a stereotactic method. The homolateral iris was studied by electron microscopy three days after denervation. Abnormally large pinocytotic vacuoles were observed in the endothelial cells of the iris capillaries and the intercellular junctions of the endothelial cells showed widened inter-cellular space and macula occludens. These ultrastructural changes may explain the protein leakage into the anterior chamber in neuroparalytic keratitis.
