Abstract

Epithelial cells of hyperplastic thymuses, removed because of myasthenia gravis were studied electronmicroscopically and morphometrically. The correlation between the age of patients and the number of epithelial cells of the thymus is discussed. Various types of epithelial cells are distinguished. It is believed that in the pathogenesis of myasthenia gravis, besides the presence of lymphoid follicles in the hyperplastic thymus, and increase of the number of epithelial cells and their activation may play a part.
