The anterior pituitary lobe was examined in 3 normal, 7 fat, 2 fat dwarf and 1 normal dwarf mouse. No histological differences were found between the fat mice and the normal controls. The fat dwarf mice closely resembled the histology previously described for the normal dwarf mice, but there were a number of hypoacidophiles and typical acidophiles present.
