Stromal cells are the connective tissue cells of an organ found in the loose connective tissue. They function as a framework of the organ, and the most common types are fibroblasts, immune cells, pericytes, endothelial cells, and inflammatory cells. They are most commonly associated with the haematopoietic system, uterine mucosa (endometrium), prostate gland, ovaries, and other organs.
