Abstract

Histopathological changes occurring in rat kidneys on administration of oral oxalate were studied. Two groups — one control and one experimental — each consisting of six male albino Wistar rats were studied. The controls were fed on a diet of known composition and deionised water ad libitum, and the experimental rats, on a diet containing 3 mg% sodium oxalate and deionised water ad libitum. After one month, the kidneys were examined histopathology.
