Abstract
The microvascular system arrangement of the palatine mucosa in young rabbit s was studied using vascular corrosion casts. Specimens were obtained by in jecting low viscosity resin. Superficial microvessels were observed mainly by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The blood microvessels showed differ ing features in the areas considered palatine rugae, inter-rugal areas and posterior region of the palatine raphe. Larger vessels were noted in deeper layers. Several capillary loops were distributed all over the palatine rug al surface. In spite of being a young animal, the rabbit's palatine mucosa demonstrated a complex angioarchitecture.
