Abstract: Immunocompetent cells were isolated from spleen of B. himalayanus and studied surface morphology of the three different cell types - (i) plastic adherent; (ii) nylon wool adherent; and (iii) nylon wool non-adherent cells. As revealed by scanning electron microscopy, they resembled the macrophages, B and T cells, respectively. Presence of such cell types indicated that Bufo himalayanus possessed a well-organized immune system. Further work is needed to characterize the functional efficacy of these immunocompetent cells found in B. himalayanus.
