The pituitary of the saharian lizard Uromastix acanthinurus looks like those of other Agamidae. The pars intermedia is well developed. The elongated pars distalis is situated under the median eminence; it includes the rostral and caudal regions (two-thirds of the lobe). In the rostral region, the cytoimmunofluorescence technique has enabled us to reveal LTH-like cells, ACTH-like cells, and gonadotropin-producing cells. The latter are also revealed scattered in the caudal region where we find STH-like cells and numerous degranulated cells, also. © 1979.
