The histological results revealed that the cells of treatment adrenal gland contain less granules in cytoplasm than adrenal of group control, this study also showed that the cortex in treatment group thinner than cortex of control group in this state give indicate the treatment adrenal gland has weakness in their secretion. The medulla has numerous of follicles which contain (7-10) chromaffin cells as well as that, the treatment group thinner than control group.
