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


The kidneys of male Wistar rats 21 days following a single intravenous injections of daunomycin at 7 mg/kg body weight are slightly increased in size and weight. The capsular surface is relatively smooth and pale yellow. The cut surface of the kidneys have a relatively sharp corticomedullary junction but are slightly yellowish. No localized lesion is seen.
