Schwann cells. Any of the cells that cover the nerve fibers in the peripheral nervous system and form the myelin sheath. Also called neurilemma cell. They are a type of glial cell.

Types of glial cells include oligodendrocytes, astrocytes, ependymal cells, Schwann cells , microglia, and satellite cells.
