Adrenal Gland, Cortex - Atrophy - Gallery

Image of atrophy in the adrenal gland cortex from a female Sprague-Dawley rat in a chronic study
Adrenal gland, Cortex - Atrophy in a female Sprague-Dawley rat from a chronic study. The width of the cortex (C) and the overall size of the gland are decreased; the capsule (arrow) is thickened by fibrosis. M = medulla.
Image of atrophy in the adrenal gland cortex from a female Sprague-Dawley rat in a chronic study
Adrenal gland, Cortex - Atrophy in a female Sprague-Dawley rat from a chronic study (higher magnification of Figure 1). The width of the zona fasciculata is decreased, and the cell nuclei in the outer zona fasciculata are crowded, suggesting a decrease in size. C = cortex, M = medulla.
Image of atrophy in the adrenal gland cortex from a female Sprague-Dawley rat in a chronic study
Adrenal gland, Cortex - Normal in a female Sprague-Dawley rat from a chronic study. A normal adrenal gland at the same magnification as Figure 1 is shown for comparison. C = cortex, M = medulla.
