The peripolar cell is a glomerular epithelial cell at the vascular pole, lying between the parietal epithelium and the podocytes of the tuft. Morphological evidence indicates that the peripolar cell could be a secretory cell. The secretory product is unknown. Experimental evidence has suggested that the peripolar cell may be a previously unrecognised component of the juxtaglomerular apparatus.
