Abstract

Six medulloblastomas were studied by electron microscopy. Two features were found which seem to be constant and essential characteristics of medulloblastoma. First, cell junctions are abundant between tumor cells. These are mostly desmosome-like but other, closer junctions, were also seen. Second, the capillary endothelia contain frequent tubular bodies and other inclusions which may be related to them.
