The development of central and peripheral lymphoid tissue may be dependent on endocrine glands, particularly on the pituitary activity. The relationship between the hypophysis and the lymphoid tissue was investigated in hypophysectomized rats [1, 2] or in intrauterinely decapitated fetuses [3], and more recently by the use of antipituitary or antisomatotropic hormone antisera [4, 5].
