Abstract: In order to know the morphological change of the early phase of lipid formation in adrenocortical cells, the adrenal cortex of rats which were fed with high-fat, low-protein and cholesterol supplements was ultrastructurally observed with stereological analysis of lipid droplets in each zone. The amount and spherical size distribution of lipid droplets of the adrenal cortex were stable within 24 hours of experiment contrasting to the liver of the same experimental rats which was previously observed that lipid droplets accumulated in the hepatocytes on and after 6 hours of experiment. This fact suggests the possibility that the amount of adrenocortical lipid droplets is stable under the hepatic regulation of cholesterol metabolism. And, also, each zone of the adrenal cortex was characterized by the amount and spherical size distribution of lipid droplets.
