DEVECI, E  and  ERDEM, E. Effects of Cadmium Chloride on Lymph Node Cells in Rats. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2013, vol.31, n.2, pp.615-617. ISSN 0717-9502.

Cadmium, hazardous heavy metal, is recognized to produce severe toxic effects in humans. In this study, intestinal wall surrounding the mesenteric lymph nodes, based on the cadmium to be mainly lymphocytes and plasma cells, granulocytes eozinofil examined effects on the immune system were investigated by histochemical and electron microscope. Electron microscope examination of the cross section of cadmium, mitochondria cristae in the cytoplasm of lymphocytes was observed deterioration in the structure and degenerative changes in dilated endoplasmic reticulum,were seen together with elongation, that a small number of multi-focal granular lymphocytes, but plasma cells and eosinophilic granulocytes of the structures of multi-focal granular structures of various sizes, and their numbers were much higher.

Keywords : Cadmium chloride; Lymph node; Electron microscope examination.
