Most of the literature about the in vivo effects of estrogens seems to be primarily concerned with vertebrate reproduction. This emphasis is a natural extension of the earliest recognition of induced estrus. However, it has obscured some reports of the effects of estrogens on organs and tissues which have no known reproductive or post-reproductive functions. The main purpose of this report is to draw attention to one such case.
