Reticular Connective Tissue

Reticular connective tissue is a type of connective tissue.  It has a network of reticular fibers, made of type III collagen.  Reticular fibers are not unique to reticular connective tissue, but only in this type are they dominant.  Reticular fibers are synthesized by special fibroblasts called reticular cells. The fibers are thin branching structures. (from wikipedia)
