These cells in their turn may either remain unchanged and keep their place, or, especially when they have engulfed large quantities of carbon, they may move away into the tissue and transform themselves into either common histiocytes (resting wandering cells, clasmatocytes) and then into polyblasts or directly into round, ameboid polyblasts.
In confirmation of the previous findings of Maximow,(2) the polyblasts, the mononuclear exudate cells in the inflamed tissue, arise partly through mobilization of the local histiocytes, the resting wandering cells of the loose connective tissue, and partly through rapid hypertrophy of the emigrated lymphocytes and monocytes.
That the lymphocytes and monocytes, on one hand, and the resting wandering cells or histiocytes, on the other hand, are closely related cell types, has been shown by the embryologic researches of Maximow(28) and confirmed recently by Alfejew.
