Abstract

The concentration of thyroid hormone and the condition of the thyroid gland play an important part in the regeneration of the gland after excision of one-third of both lobes. The epithelium regenerating at the wound surface is lower in experimental hypothyroidism and higher in hyperthyroidism than it is in the uninjured portion. Evidently, variations in height are due to differences in the phase of the secretory cycle.
