Morphological method is one of the most objectives in assessing the condition of both varicose and convoluted veins in varicocele. In the present study fragments of varicose veins from children 12–18 years old with varicocele were investigated. The SEM studies showed numerous clusters on the clear surface of erythrocytes and other blood cells with strands of
fibrin that may be precursors of the thrombi formation. Erythrocytes are the most numerous among the clusters of blood copuscles, echinocytes being their pathological forms. The data obtained should be considered in finding the method of surgical correction of this pathology.
