Abstract

Goitre involution was studied in rats during an iodide refeeding period. A first phase (day 0-8) was characterised by a dramatical regression of the hypervascularity, which was induced by plasma iodide, but was thyrotropin independent. During a second phase (day 8-90), follicle formation occurred, associated with the increase of the interstitial tissue in the gland and controlled by the plasma thyrotropin concentration.
