Changes in fine structure of thyroid follicular cells were studied in rats given oral administration of Korean Panax Ginseng for 60 days. The rough-surfaced endoplasmic reticulum was distended and formed large cisternae, the Golgi complex was hypertrophic, and enlarged colloid droplets and lysosomes were more numerous in the follicular cells of ginseng treated rats. Morphologic changes observed may represent stimulating effects on the thyroid gland in ginseng treated animals.
