This rate gradually over a period of one week to 100 mg / case / day and kept on to day 60. At the end of period rabbits were euthanized, kidney and liver tissues were removed and fixed in formalin. Routine histological methods was done to prepare slides and stained with H&E. Results: our findings showed that in rabbits treated with opium the dilation of collecting tubules, dilation on interestisium, sever hemorrhage, hypertrophy and hyperplasia of renal corpuscles was recorded. In liver hyperemia in central veins, presence of inflammatory cells, fatty change, necrosis of hepatocytes and enlarging the sinusoids was seen.
