The control group is given inta peritoneal injection of physiological normal saline and the second and third group are given inta peritoneal injection of gentamicin doses twenty, forty mg/kg/day respectively for 20 days from the first day to the end of experimental allocated for each female.The rats are sacrificed in 20 th (dpc) to study the hitopathological effects of gentamicin on placenta. The histopathlogical study of female rats embryos treated with twenty, forty mg/kg/day of gentamicin have shown degeneration of spongiotrophoblast and congestions in placental labyrinth compare to control group.The scanning electron microscope study show deformation of architecture structure of placental parenchyma.
