Following an inflammatory stimulus such as the injection of erythrocytes into the tunic of Ciona intestinalis, hemocytesrespond to events occurring in the tunic within a short time, and infiltrate the inflamed tissue being massively involved inthe acute inflammatory response and capsule formation.The proliferative response of circulating hemocytes and pharynx assume particular interest as it is significantly enhancedduring these defence reactions. Microscopy clearly may contribute to extend our understanding of the phenomenonshowing interesting mitotic figures and hematogenic nodules with proliferative characteristics.
