 Aim:  In order to reveal the histochemical alteration that might occur during the process of  spermatogenic disruption induced by testicular capsulotomy, the location and alteration of lipid droplets in the seminiferous tubules were observed. Methods: Osmium tetroxide was used to demonstrate the lipid droplets in the seminiferous tubules of capsulotomized and sham-operated rat testes. Results: In the seminiferous tubules of the sham-operated testes, many small lipid droplets were located close to the basement membrane. But in the capsulotomized testes, the lipid droplets were increased in size and number with many migrated towards the lumen. Conclusion: A progressive fatty degeneration occurred in the seminiferous tubules after testicular capsulotomy.
