   Cartilage Tissue is a type of dense connective tissue. It is composed of
specialized cells called chondrocytes that produce a large amount of extracellular
matrix composed of collagen fibers, abundant ground substance rich in proteoglycan,
and elastin fibers. Cartilage is classified in three types, elastic cartilage,
hyaline cartilage and fibrocartilage, which differ in the relative amounts of these
three main components.
