Figure 9: Light microscopic finding of renal section of normal and diabetic rats. A: Normal control rat showing normal glomerulus (original magnification X400). B: Diabetic rat showing a glomerulus with mild increase in the mesangial matrix and cellularity (original magnification X600). C: An overall appearance of the normal control rat kidney (original magnification X100). D: An overall appearance of the diabetic rat kidney with mild tubular dilatation areas indicated by the stars and foamy cells of the tubules indicated by the arrow (original magnification X100). E: Normal control rat section showing slightly shrinkage of Bowman’s capsule and glomerulus with normal tubular appearance, (original magnification X600). F, diabetics rat showing shrinkage of Bowman’s capsule and glomerulus (ischemic) (original magnification X600).
