Various cytoplasmic and intranuclear inclusions found in macrophages and astrocytes of lead-implanted rat brains were studied with an energy dispersive x-ray microanalytical technique. Cytoplasmic inclusions contained large quantities of lead, calcium and phosphorus. The proportions of these elements were different within each inclusion. Intranuclear inclusions also contained small amounts of lead and, occasionally, calcium.
