Abstract

MICE homozygous for the mutation, nude (nu) have been reported to have no thymus1, although they retain a prelymphoid thymic rudiment2. Here, I report the occurrence of individuals that are by external signs (including hairlessness) a nude mutation but possess an apparently normal thymus.
