horn tubule

A type of cylindrical horn structure found in the horn of the hoof. It represents the horn that is grown from the epidermis of the papillae on the corium of the hoof wall and the sole. Microscopically a small medullary cavity is visible in the centre of the tubule - this is caused by the lack of germinative cells at the very tip of the papilla.
