An investigation was conducted on the effect of two corticosteroid drugs such as dexamethasone (Oradexon®) and predinisolone (Deltasone®) on hematological profiles (blood glucose, absolute number of various granulocytes) and histopathology of liver in rats for a period of 60 days. A total of 25 apparently healthy rats were randomly divided into 5 groups and each group contained 5 rats. Group-A (control) and was given only basal ration. Other treatment groups (B, C, D and E) were given dexamethasone (Oradexon®, @ 0.5 mg/kg b.wt.) and predinsolone (Deltason @ 2 mg/kg b.wt.) mixed with drinking water. The blood glucose level was increased significantly (P<0.01) in all four treatment groups (B, C, D and E). Corticosteroid drugs did not alter the feed intake and water consumption in treated rats. All treated rats showed a significant (P<0.05 and P<0.01) decrease in bodyweight, where Oradexon @ decreased body weight very significantly (P<0.01) from day 30 to 60. Absolute count of Neutrophil increased significantly (P<0.01). On the other hand, absolute count of Lymphocyte and Eosinophil were decreased significantly (P<0.01). Grossly, Rats in group B and D showed slight congestion in the liver. Thigh muscles were atrophied in all treatment groups (B, C and D). Hemorrhage and ulceration were found in all the treated rats. Swollen joints and softening long bones were observed in group B, C and E.

Keywords: Dexamethasone, Prednisolone, Rat, Lymphocyte, Liver. Hepatocytes.
