Mesengial cells are the specialized cells of the kidney that make up the mesangium of the glomerulus. Histiocytes are the macrophages in the connective tissue. Kupffer cells are star shaped macrophages lining the liver and an alveolar macrophage (or dust cell) is a type of macrophage found in the pulmonary alveolus, near the pneumocytes, but separated from the wall.
