Suspension of tetraiodotherephtalic acid-bis-oxyethylester (120-480 mg I/ml) was injected percutaneously into the testicles, mammary glands, and the cervix of the uterus in mongrel dogs. The suspension was rapidly absorbed by the lymphatics draining the injection sites and transported to the regional lymph nodes. Excellent filling of lymphatics and nodes was apparent immediately or a few minutes after injection. Because of locally produced inflammatory reaction, percutaneous indirect lymphography with tetraiodotherephtalic acid-bis-oxyethylester is now applicable only in experimental animal studies.
