Testosterone, like cortisone, provokes an accumulation of Gomori positive cells in the thymus; the inducer effect is strong and long lasting as shown by the steadily increasing number of Gomori positive cells. Thyroidectomy enhances the manifestation of general epithelial potencies (cyst formation) and inhibits the regeneration of thymus. This supports the correlation between the thyroid and thymus, demonstrated earlier.
