This study was designed to evaluate the effects of exposure of boars to wastewater/effluent contaminated water on
testicular function. Boars reared on contaminated water were purchased, and their testicular tissue was processed for
histopathological observations. The lesions observed included; vacuolated seminiferous epithelium, sloughing of germ
cells and depletion of the seminiferous epithelium. The findings indicate that exposure of boars to mixtures of
environmental toxicants can result in perturbation of spermatogenesis with consequences on fertility.
