In a girl five years of age, fifteen follicles were counted in the ovaries.
Follicles 2, one of them often abortive, soft, ovate or lanceolate.
All are situated about the orifices of the follicles and glands of the skin.
The follicles are found only in the skin and mucous membrane.
If the scalp be glossy, and no small hairs are discernible, the roots or follicles are dead, and can not be resuscitated.
In addition to swollen and hypertrophied follicles there may be some evidence of ulcerative destruction of these follicles.
Here and there one or two of the follicles in the Peyer's patch may have its centre indented by ulceration.
In chronic catarrh the follicles acquire greater size than in the acute form.
Follicles less than one millimeter in diameter were not counted.
There was no direct connection between the cellular infiltration and the follicles of the hair.
