Hi! Here is a section through the tongue. Besides the striated muscles, and the glands you can easily observe, right under the stratified squamous epithelium,in the connective tissue of the papillae, at the top of the picture, you can see many structures, some of them oval shape, some of them round shape, or even in longitudinal section cut. They are colored in different shades of orange, and it seems like they contain numerous 'vesicles' inside them.


 Although it may be easy to identified, I couldn't figure out, so does anyone have any idea what these structures are?

I could not attach the file, so I did some copy paste of the link. Hope it works.

Thank you very much !
