Abstract

The effect of oral administration of lindane (1 mg/kg body weight for 6 days) was seen in the testis of adult albino rats. Lindane treatment significantly reduced the body weight as well as the weight of the testis. Several histological alterations were observed in the testis of treated rats. Total lipid content was also significantly reduced in the testis after the administration of lindane.
