Paper Abstract

The present histological and stereological studies are on thyroid glands of Wistar rats irradiated with an IR laser. The animals were exposed to total doses of 46,80 J/cm2, and sacrificed at 1, 40, and 180 days after the last treatment. A morphological and stereological study was made on follicular epithelium, follicle, stroma, and capillary. The laser beam produced an increase of follicular epithelial volume and hyperplasia of follicular cells in the animals sacrificed at 1, 40, and 180 days after the last treatment. Capillary dilation underwent a progressive decrease as time passed. It was higher in the animals sacrificed after 24 hours, then it decreased after 40 days and finally disappeared after 180 days.
