A histochemical method modified for ultrastructural studies of mercury induced changes is described. Rat neurons from areas known to be influenced by mercury are used as examples. The histochemical reaction, suggested to be caused by polymercury sulphide complexes, is localized to "dense bodies" where it is visible 14 days after initiation of peroral mercury treatment (20 mg HgCl2/l drinking water).
