Abstract: The microscopic studies of Renal tubules of 6 Marwari sheep showed that there was no significant difference between juxtamedullary renal corpuscles and cortical corpuscles. The glomeruli in the cortical region had an average transverse diameter of 109.35±2.85 microns and average vertical diameter of 84.41±2.18 microns. The average transverse diameter of juxtamedullary glomeruli was 128.55±2.18 microns and average vertical diameter was 94.7±1.72 microns. The average diameter of PCT, DCT, collecting duct, thick and thin segment of loop of Henle was 49.91±2.02, 39.14±1.82, 42.80±0.99, 32.85±1.11, and 19.50±0.76 micron respectively.
