The article discusses a study that explored the toxic potential of deltamethrin on the development of testis in mice. It assesses the histophathological changes induced by different concentrations of deltamethrin used repeatedly for 15 and 30 days. Findings found significant alterations in the testes of all dose groups. Several histological abnormalities were observed, including hyalinization, vacuolization, and exfoliated spermatocytes. It provides evidence that the pathological changes are dose and exposure time dependent.
