The bursa of Fabricius from thyroxine-treated group showed increased number of large lymphocytes with well-developed cytoplasm, immunoblasts and proplasmacytes accompanied with active cell divisions. More prominent development of Golgi apparatus and mitochondria in the cytoplasm of the cells in the bursa from this group were also observed. The bursa of Fabricius from the propylthiouracil-treated group, however, distinctively revealed proliferation of fibroblasts in the interstitial tissues, decreased number of lymphocytes, and necrotic lymphocytes in the follicles.
