Aim: In this study, it was aimed that stereolojically investigation to effect of soybean extract to renal tissue in female rats.

Materials and Methods: Totally 16 female Sprague Dawley rats were used. Rats were divided into control and soy extract groups. In Control group, 1 mL solvent was given perorally, while 200 mg/kg/day doses soybean extract were given to experiment group orally for 1 month. Finally, the kidneys taken from rats were analyzed by using stereological methods.

Results: Morphometric features and diameters of glomerulus in medulla and cortex were failing a change in rats of experiment groups.

Conclusion: As a result, it may be stated that ethyl acetate extract of the soybean has no effect to the glomerulus and morphometric features of the renal tissue.
