Paneth Cells are one of four principal cell types found in the epithelium of the small intestine; the other three are the goblet cell, enterocyte, and enteroendocrine cell. Paneth cells may also be found in the cecum and appendix, although sporadically. These cells are identifiable microscopically by their location just below the intestinal stem cells in the intestinal glands. and the large eosinophilic refractile granules that occupy most of their cytoplasm.
