Light micrographs of the rat's renal cortex. Normal cortical structure is observed in the renal sections of both control (A) and aged garlic extract-treated (B) rats. Glomerular atrophy (G), wide capsular space (C), degenerated (*) proximal tubules (P) with exfoliating cells (arrow head), accumulation of hyaline cast (arrow) within its wide lumina (L), wide lumen of distal convoluted tubules (D) and interstitium inflammatory cell infiltration (I) are noticed in cisplatin-treated rats (C). Wide capsular lumina (C), minimal degenerated (*) proximal tubules (P) and wide distal tubules (D) are seen in the combined aged garlic extract and cisplatin-treated rats (D). H & E stain x600.
