Resumen: An immunocytochemical study of the epithelial lining of naturally occurring cysts in the rat intermediate lobe (IL) has been carried out. Paraffinembedded sections, in which cysts were identifiable, were treated either with anti-serotonin or anti-S-100 protein sera. S-100-positive cells were intermingled with glandular cells surrounding the cyst lumen. These S-100- positive cells sent slender cytoplasmic processes as if to cover the apical surface of neighbouring cells. Rarely were 5-HT-immunopositive cells seen in the cyst epithelial lining. Most cells of the marginal layer of the IL were found reactive either to an S-100 or a-5-HT serum. The presence of an epithelial lining positive to S-100 protein sera is in keeping with the notion that cysts in the IL might form as evaginations of the epithelial lining of the pituitary cleft. The lack of correspondence between 5-HT-positive cells in the marginal layer and the cyst lining is controversial. A peculiar spatial relationship of 5-HT cells with the vascular network of the IL is suggested.
