Thyroid deficiency arising early in life has long been known to produce a severe and frequently irreversible damage of the nervous system. In the rat brain, the most remarkable histological alteration observed in this condition is a marked hypoplasia of both the axonal and dendritic components of the neuropil (1) and a defective development of Purkinje cells and cerebellar glomeruli (2).
