Plate 2.17: Cuboidal Epithelium

Human, 10% formalin, H. & E., A. 85 x; B. and C. 216 x.

The cells commonly referred to as cuboidal are always found to be five- or six-sided when cut through their axial or cross-sectional plane. This can be seen most readily in sections of the digestive system and kidney where almost every section contains both longitudinal and transverse profiles of cuboidal and columnar epithelia.
