Lithium ions accumulated consistently in the pituitary and thyroid of rats at concentrations significantly greater than in plasma. There was also a significant, although lower, accumulation of Li+ in the adrenal gland. No accumulation of lithium ion was noted in the testis or in the ovary. The possible significance of these findings with regard to some of the side effects of lithium carbonate treatment is discussed.
