The current study aimed to determine the pathological effects of chronic poisoning with sodium fluoride on some reproductive organs like ovary, and testis of adult’s male and female albino rats. Thirty-six male and female adult’s albino rats were divided into six groups. The first and second group of male and female rats are control groups was given tap drinking water, the third and fourth groups of male and female rats was given 150 ppm of NaF, the fifth and sixth group of male and female rats was given 300 ppm of NaF respectively for 90 days. The weights of male and female genital were recorded. Histological exam of control groups of female rats showed the typical histological structure of the ovary, while the NaF treated groups showed a decrease in growing follicles, in addition to thickening in tunica albuginea and deposition of eosinophilic material. In male control groups, the sections showed the typical histological structures of the testis, while the treated groups showed multinucleated spermatids in addition to the deposition of amorphous eosinophilic material in the interstitial tissue, coagulative necrosis, in addition to apoptotic and sloughed spermatogonia in the lumen of seminiferous tubule. These results indicate that sodium fluoride with 300 ppm has toxic effects on organ body weights and on the histology of the gonads of adult’s male and female albino rats.

This study aimed detection and identification of the lesions in the ovaries of ewes and determination of their percentages in Mosul region. For that purpose, ovaries from 108 genital systems were randomly collected from non-pregnant ewes slaughtered at Mosul slaughter house and private butcheries for a period extended from 1/11/2012 to 1/5/2013. All of them were grossly and histologically examined. The result showed occurrence of ovarian cortical atrophy at 0.93% of total samples, also ovarian medullary sinusoidal congestion, ovarian cortical hemorrhage, cortical and medullary perivascular fibrosis at ratios 5.0, 1.39, 1.85, 0.46% respectively noticed. Ovarian follicular degeneration, cortical oophoritis, purulent oophoritis and ovarian cortical scarification also recorded at the ratios 1.39, 0.46, 0.46 and 1.39% respectively, both fibroma and fibrosarcoma were diagnosed at the ratio 0.46% for each. It is concluded from the present study that variable lesions were noticed at the examined samples that may reflect multiple causative agents inducing it.
