The light and electron microscopic observations were carried out in order to know the morphological changes of the fat-storing cells (FSC) in the liver of rabbits given Ginseng for 30 days. The results obtained were as follows: The FSC of experimental group was shown the appearance of a few large lipid droplets, enlarged rough surfaced endoplasmic reticulum, some residual body in the enlarged rER and the nuclear body in some cases. As these findings, it could be suggested that the Ginseng affect the synthesis and accumulation of lipid on the FSC.
