AbstractThe Mediterranean sea urchin (Paracentrotus lividus) is of great ecological and economic importance for the European aquaculture. Few studies explain how this animal interacts with pathogens and which immune mechanisms are induced to overcome the diseases. The immune system involves humoral and cellular components. The immune cells are coelomocytes and move in the coelomic spaces. There is not a single standard classification of coelomocytes for all echinoderms since they are heterogeneous in morphology and size. The immune functions of each type of coelomocyte are still not totally understood, but it is postulated that amoeboid-phagocytic cells and spherule cells are the only cellular components of the immune system
