Rough endoplasmic reticulum is not evenly distributed, only limited and appears as relatively short strand located close to the nucleus and among groups of mitochondria (Fig.
It is possible to observe that the materials in spherocrystals accumulate in concentric layers; spherocrystals are enclosed by a membrane and are in close contact with the rough endoplasmic reticulum (Figure 3D).
The cytoplasm contains numerous mitochondria, smooth and rough endoplasmic reticulum, vesicles, microtubules, ribosomes, and dense tubules (Figs.

Common findings were dilated stacks of rough endoplasmic reticulum, polyribosomes, randomly distributed intermediate filaments, and rare collagen secretion granules (Fig 5).
The presence of nucleus (N), nucleolus (Nu), ribosomes (R), cisterns of the rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER), mitochondria (Mt), among other normal cytoplasmic elements could be observed which are part of the hypothalamic nervous cells.
