In a previous communication, it was stated that the pituitary gland secretion has a selective action on mesenchymal tissues (1). The suprarenal cortex as a mesenchymal tissue is influenced by the state of the pituitary gland.

6. Serous layer of intestines.
A differentiation of the mesoderm into mesenchyme and mesothelium is not agreed to
