in the mouse, the lobes of the thymus are not subdivided into lobules but only in the central medulla and a peripheral cortex (i.e. there is no distinct sublobulation). In humans, the two thymus lobes are composed of many lobules of various sizes which contain follicles, each comprising a medulla and a cortex. in the rat, the thymus is partially subdivided into lobules separated by thin bands of connective tissue which are continuous with the thin connective tissue capsule.[MP]
