Résumé : Appropriate techniques such as Bodian's method prove the presence of very numerous argyrophilic cells in the human adenohypophysis in the infant as well as in the adult. This population of argyrophilic cells is heterogenous, cytoimmunological tests demonstrates that a lot of them belong to the groups of gonadotropic cells. On the other hand, no argyrophilic cell stains positively with Falck's technique. The exposure of human lyophilized hypophysis to formaldehyde vapours reveals the existence of many fluorescent cells but comparisons prove certainly that these elements square only with the beta cells, in fact with the cells responsible for corticotropin secretion.
