Histological observation on changes induced in some tissues of the edible mudskipper boleophthalmus dussumieri exposed to sublethal concentrations of sodium fluoride

Histological observation on changes induced in some tissues of the edible mudskipper boleophthalmus dussumieri exposed to sublethal concentrations of sodium fluoride

Journal of Animal Morphology & Physiology 34(1-2): 69-76

The edible mudskipper, Boleophthalmus dussumieri was exposed to sublethal concentrations (viz., 40 and 80 ppm F) of fluoride for 168 h. The effect of fluoride toxicity in liver, kidney and brain has been examined. Fatty degeneration and subsequent necrosis could be seen in the hepatic tissue while the renal tissue showed shrunken glomerulus, broken proximal tubules and degenerated tubular cytoplasm. In the brain reduction of telencephalic cytoplasm, nuclear material and Nissl's substance was noticeable. The primary site of damage was liver, while kidney, and brain tissues were less affected. Possibility of recovery from adverse effects of fluoride poisoning has been discussed.
