ABSTRACT The claim made in this publication of the existence of a hitherto unknown interstitial space is based on studies with sample-based confocal laser endo-microscopy (pCLM). Due to postings on various web portals (New Cellvizio, EurekAlert, Google Scholar,...) the alleged discovery has found great resonance. Nevertheless, there are several critical issues in this publication, the most important being that this is not the discovery of an "unrecognized" interstitium as it has, in fact, been known for a long time.
