Effect of Experimental Diabetes Mellitus, Kidney, Rat

  • Herbert Wehner
Part of the Monographs on Pathology of Laboratory Animals book series (LABORATORY)


Diabetic rat kidneys are larger than those of normal rats of corresponding age. The capsular surface is usually smooth. A fine granulation can occur in late stages. The cut surfaces are brownish red.
